Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. is starting its 24th year of hosting one of the largest indoor “garage sales” in the area to benefit single parents and their children in a program that takes them from homelessness to hopefulness. The spring semi-annual benefit sale will be Friday and Saturday, May 17 and 18, from 8 am to 4 pm at 3805 Mississippi Avenue, the office and donation center for Humility of Mary Housing. The sale features a wide variety of new and gently used items including: dishes, bedding and linens, jewelry, small appliances, furniture, pictures, books, clothing and much more.
Humility of Mary Housing serves 47 single parent families and approximately 100 children every day except when an apartment is being prepared for a new family. In this program children learn there is a different way to live; families have not only a roof over their heads but they are given the opportunities to build a foundation under their feet. This is a program that takes people from homelessness to self-sufficiency because every person has potential.
