BLUE GRASS, Iowa (KWQC) - Dozens of homes in Blue Grass participated in a city-wide garage sale on Friday and Saturday.

A part of the weekend sale included the Community Charitable Drop Off Program. Proceeds from that sale go toward more than ten different charities. Those include Humility Homes and Services, Clothing Center at Minnie’s Maison, Friendly House, Open Door Crisis Center, Blue Grass Bugle Newsletter, Buffalo Food Pantry, Blue Grass Blessing Box, Quad City Veterans Outreach Center, Rescued Resale Shop, Ruff Life Dog Rescue and the Blue Grass Community Charitable Drop Off Program’s donation/resale building acquirement fund.

“From set up and yesterday, a little over fourteen hundred dollars [raised] so that is amazing when you spread it out between all the different charities,” says Tammy Stoffers, President of the Blue Grass Community Charitable Drop Off Program.

Second-hand clothing, shoes, furniture, and more were all for sale at the two-day event.

“It’s a great way to help support small communities, and as you can see from all the cars and people that came out, they make the experience a good one for everybody,” says organizer Tim Rhoades.

The group is working on buying a stand-alone building to host resale events. To donate, visit their Facebook page.
