The annual benefit sale for Humility of Mary Housing that started in a garage 22 years ago and eventually moved to the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds has moved again. The new location is 3805 Mississippi Avenue, the new office building and donation center of Humility of Mary Housing. This building is off Kimberly, between Bridge and Eastern, just north of Habitat ReStore and east of Dahl Ford.

There will be two sales a year, one in the spring and another in the fall. The first semi-annual benefit sale will be Saturday, May 19, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, May 20, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m

This sale continues to carry a large selection of gently used or new items, all in working condition, including house wares, bedding, toys, jewelry, gift items, furniture, books, games and much more. This year clothing has been added to the sale. The sale is staffed by a growing number of fantastic volunteers who turn the sale into a social event. One is sure to go away with some special treasure.

All proceeds from this sale 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, parents are provided with opportunities upon which they build the foundation for a greater future for their families.
