Elizabeth Pan had the idea to host a yard sale with the proceeds of her sale going to the victims of the recent Maui fires in Hawaii. She recruited Robin Kolko to help with planning and logistics. People donated items to be sold in her driveway. Signs went up around the neighborhood, and on Saturday, September 30, people showed up early to go through all the interesting items. There were kitchen gadgets, games, books, dishes, a few bicycles, and a scooter. But best of all, designer clothes and shoes! The weather cooperated – not too hot or cold!
Everyone went home happy and the victims in Maui received a donation of more than $1200 (the leftover sale items were donated to local charities). At the end of the day, the Lakeport yard sale fulfilled all the goal of the sale.
Elizabeth and Robin want to thank everyone for participating in the sale, donating goods, or even just accommodating the extra traffic through the neighborhood. If you want to learn more about how you can help the fire victims, check out @peoplefundforMaui.
We hope those hosting their own yard sale had as much fun and success!
