The parking lot across from the Dairy Queen on Moody Street, home to the small brick building that serves as the Victoria Long-Term Recovery Group office, will be full of sale items 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday.
The Victoria Long-Term Recovery Group is hosting a Parking Lot Sale fundraiser to help cover operational expenses.
“I’ve applied for a number of grants, but many are for unmet needs and staffing,” said Rick Villa, development coordinator for the group. “I haven’t had too much success with operational costs, and that’s why this is going on, and it’s very important.”
Both indoor and outdoor items will be available, some priced below $1. New Armstrong-brand flooring planks in two colors will be sold for $10 per bundle. Visitors can shop for household goods, children’s items, clothing, purses, shoes, books and magazines, among many other offerings. They can stuff a bag for $5.
“This organization has done so much for the community, provided assistance, and it’s still hard working on trying to help families recover, rebuild and rejoice – that’s our theme,” Villa said. “We want to thank the community for all its support. We’re here doing events also for public awareness, for people who didn’t know we were here, and this little house is where we operate, and we will provide information about our services as well.”
