Lawai Cannery Row Self Storage & Warehousing in Kalaheo, Hawaii, hosted a garage sale on March 23 to benefit the Kauai branch of Easter Seals of Hawaii, a charity that provides individualized family-centered services to people with disabilities or special needs. The facility launched the community event six years ago to raise funds for various aid organizations. Those looking to sell items at the sale pay a registration fee, which is donated to a designated group each year.
Easter Seals has been the beneficiary of the event for three consecutive years, receiving a total of $15,000 in donations. This year the charity also took advantage of a free booth from which it sold rummage items. A total of 35 vendors participated in the sale.
This year’s garage sale coincided with the Easter Seals Molokai Sweetbread sale. Community members who placed orders were able to pick them up at the self-storage event.
Easter Seals typically hosts two garage-sale fundraisers per year, but only one is scheduled in 2014, Liz Ann Vidinha of Easter Seals told the source. The donations are split among the three Kauai centers in Kapaa, Lihue and Waimea to fund a variety of activities including a summer event and a year-end holiday lunch.
Lawai Cannery Row Self Storage & Warehousing, 3470 Lauoho Road, is open every day. Amenities include boat/RV parking, drive-up access and packing and moving supplies.
