Sale to benefit housing program


DAVENPORT — The annual benefit sale for Humility of Mary Housing that started in a garage 22 years ago and eventually moved to the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds has moved again. The new location is 3805 Mississippi Ave., the new office building and donation center of Humility of Mary Housing.  This building is off Kimberly Road, between Bridge Avenue and Eastern Avenue, just north of Habitat ReStore and east of Dahl Ford.
There will be two sales a year, one in the spring and another in the fall.  The first semi-annual benefit sale will be Saturday, May 19, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, May 20, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m
This sale continues to carry a large selection of gently used or new items, all in working condition, including housewares, bedding, toys, jewelry, gift items, furniture, books, games and much more.  This year clothing has been added to the sale.
All proceeds provide housing and program services for single parents and their children who have been homeless.  Through the program lives turn around; children learn there is a different way to live, and parents get opportunities to build a better future.
