United Storage Norwalk in Norwalk, Conn., is hosting a charity flea market Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the Norwalk Emergency Shelter and the Norwalk Housing Foundation College Scholarship Fund.
The self-storage operation is soliciting donation items from its self-storage tenants and the community. Vendors are also encouraged to participate. There will also be a collection jar available for cash donations.
“As part of our unique organizational core values, our staff is encouraged to make a positive impact on our communities by identifying local people and organizations that need assistance,” said Chris Martinez, manager of United Storage Norwalk. “The Norwalk Emergency Shelter and the Norwalk Housing Foundation College Scholarship Fund are such strong assets to our community and we wanted to be a part of their fundraising efforts so they can continue to offer the resources we need as a growing community.”
Donations for the flea market can be dropped off at the facility during office hours. United Storage Norwalk is offering a special discount on storage space to flea market patrons on the event day.
