Donations and Help Needed for Our April 11th Bring and Buy Sale

in

On Monday, April 11th AWC will hold its monthly Bring and Buy Sale from 10,30-2. We hope to have a wide selection of spring and summer clothing, as well as our usual range of household gadgets and linens, toys, handbags, accessories, books, costume jewelry and the like. Bring your donations to the Clubhouse any weekday from 10-4 or on the day of the Sale itself, Monday the 11th. We´re located at Plaza República del Ecuador, 6 in easy walking distance from Metro Colombia. Please don´t bring in very heavy winter coats, as we have no place to display or store them, and there is little demand at this time of the year for such garments. We´d likewise appreciate all volunteers possible for the set up and the sales day. Ana, our Girl Friday, is on medical leave and several of our usual team members are not able to help out this month due to health or personal issues. So please feel free to come in and lend us a hand. We will be setting up on Thursday and Friday, April 7th and 8th from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. The more helping hands we have, the faster we can finish our chores. No heavy work involved if you´re not up to it.
