The 36th Annual Settlement Home Charity Garage Sale is now history! And what a great event it was.
We've just announced that the Garage Sale raised $507,904! These funds will go a long way in supporting the critical work done at The Settlement Home.
This money pays for medical, educational, mental health, recreation and other expenses. While the state pays for part of the care for our children, in reality what they pay only equates to about 70% of the costs of care. This means, we are required to raise the additional 30% to cover these costs. These programs are essential in helping our abused and neglected children to heal and grow.
We are so grateful to those who donated to the Garage Sale, volunteered and of course, shopped! We can't wait until next year's event - November 1-4, 2012!
