Garage sale will help conservation efforts

Tastefully Simple's community service program, Kids in the Community, is sponsoring a garage sale on Saturday, August 7 with all proceeds going to support West Min Resources Conservation and Development (RC&D) and the conservation of natural resources.

Toys, clothing for kids, children's shoes and additional kid items will be sold at the Knights of Columbus building in Alexandria from 8 a.m. to noon.

"West Min RC&D is about empowering local people to take a proactive role in improving their standard of living and quality of life," said LaTresse Snead, Tastefully Simple's community relations team lead. "And the kids involved in this event will learn how to take a proactive role in raising money for a cause that will impact our environment."

The public is encouraged to support the event by making purchases or donations at the sale. The Knights of Columbus building is located at 722 6th Avenue East in Alexandria.
