Hello. I'm on here looking for donations for my neighbors. They are a family of five (2 parents, 3 kids) and the dad has just been diagnosed with colon cancer. His health started declining about 6 months ago and he was forced to quit working, now 3 weeks ago he was finally diagnosed. Mom is working, but now has to cut her hours at work because of all of the health issues with dad.

This family has lived in our neighborhood for the last 20 years and have become family to all of us. We all help each other out when we need it, and now is the time for us to come together!!!
Between my household and the other 7 houses on our cul de sac, we are working together to do a couple of different events to help out with medical bills, house bills, and groceries for the family.
First up, we are looking for items to be donated for a garage sale. We have been in contact with a couple of places in the Des Moines area that have a big community room for us to rent for this sale, so we are looking for all kinds of donations.
Below is just a small list of what we have brainstormed/gathered so far, if you have items to donate, let us know. We can pick items up if in the DSM/WDM area, and we will also have a couple of drop off locations for items as well. Those are still being figured out so for right now we will just pick up.
Clothes of all sizes, newborn to adult, plus size, male and female. Arts & crafts items, holiday & house decor. Books, DVDs, CDs, toys, bedding, blankets, DVD players, football memorabilia, Iowa, Iowa State & UNI clothing, house decor and more. Work out equipment, yoga mats, weights. End tables, bedside tables, kitchen items, bar stools, dressers, fans and shelves.
We are looking at having the benefit garage sale the first weekend in July, and as of now, we will accept donations for the sale until June 18th. This way we have two weeks to sort through and price everything before the sale!!!
Message us if you have anything to donate, and we will respond quickly to pick up!!!
Keep an eye out for our benefit sale too!!! We will post with all of the info as soon as it's all set up!!!!
