Clean your house or apartment of those items that are just sitting around collecting dust and help raise money to benefit afterschool programs. Latinitas is still accepting donations for its Community Garage Sale happening this Saturday, Oct. 23.
Items can be dropped off at Latinitas headquarters, 1107 S. 8th St. (South 8th Street runs parallel to South Lamar), which can be accessed from South Lamar by turning at Treadwell Avenue, one light south of Barton Springs Road.
If you have nothing to give, stop by Saturday morning to shop for a good cause. One woman’s junk is another woman’s treasure! In true Latinitas style, there will be music, pan dulce, and plenty of excellent finds, such as furniture, household décor, clothes, accessories, books, and music.
All proceeds from the garage sale will support Latinitas’ 20 afterschool programs at area elementary, middle, and high schools where Latinitas provides lessons in media and technology, strong mentors and role models, and culturally relevant curriculum. Latinitas (www.latinitasmagazine.org) is the first digital magazine made for and by young Latinas with outreach programming that empowers Hispanic girls and teens using media and technology.
