Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. (HMHI) will hold its semi-annual Fresh Start Benefit Sale Friday evening, October 12 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, October 13 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The sale is at the HMHI office and donation center located at 3805 Mississippi Avenue, Davenport.

This sale continues a 23 year tradition of providing a large selection of gently used or new items, all in working condition, including house wares, bedding, toys, jewelry, gift items, furniture, books, games, clothing and much more.

Donations for this sale can be dropped off Monday through Friday any time between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Humility of Mary Housing has 47 apartments that are used for families in the program and there is a great need for single beds, dressers and sofas to help furnish these apartments. These items can also be taken to the office and donation center. Donations are accepted throughout the year.

Donated items that cannot be used to furnish apartments or by the families are put in the sale and all proceeds are used by Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. to provide housing and program services for single parents and their children who have been homeless. Through the program lives get turned around, children learn there is a different way to live and parents are provided with opportunities upon which they build the foundation for a greater future for their families.
