Henderson County’s Giant Yard Sale

April 12, 2012

Henderson County's Giant Yard SaleSpring is in the air.  It’s time to open the windows, let the sunshine in and get to work on your spring cleaning. Do you have extra stuff just laying around your Hendersonville home that you have no use for?  How about selling it at one of the biggest yard sales in the county?  On Saturday, May 12, 2012, the Henderson County Department of Social Services will be holding its annual yard sale fundraiser event.  From 8am to 12pm, the parking lot of the Henderson County Health Department Building (located at 1200 Spartanburg Hwy, Hendersonville) will play host to the Henderson County Giant Yard Sale and Car Seat Check.  All proceeds from this event will benefit the Henderson County Foster Parent Association.

If you are interested in bringing your “stuff” to the Henderson County Giant Yard Sale, all you will need to do is make a minimum $10 donation (more would be greatly appreciated, but everything helps) and bring your own table.  You will be responsible for set up and tear down of your own area.  For more information, call 828-694-6252 or email families4kids@hendersoncountydss.org.  Because April showers sometimes spill over into May, the yard sale will be postponed to the following weekend (May 19, 2012) if the heavens decide to part and dump rain on the morning of May 12th.

The Henderson County Foster Parent Association is a local non-profit organization whose main goal is to help strengthen the foster child/family bond through education, communication, support, advocacy and public awareness. They also provide a communication network that allows foster families to find community resources to help them with their particular needs, including medical care and developmental resources.  In addition to raising funds for the special training required to educate foster parents on the role they play in their foster child’s life, they help promote the benefits of foster parenting to the general public.
