The Great African Orphan Rescue Rummage Sale

Come share the excitement for the first Great African Orphan Rescue Rummage sale to be held at 536 Crescent Blvd, next to Starbuck’s in downtown Glen Ellyn.

Proceeds from the sale go to benefit Juna Amagara Ministries, an organization founded in Glen Ellyn to save the lives of AIDS orphans in Uganda, East Africa (www.amagara.org).

The theme for this event is: Donate Stuff. Shop for Stuff. Save Lives.

“There are several great opportunities here,” said Patrick K. Brady, a member of the organization’s board of directors and the organizer of the event. “People can clear out their garages and basements – we will even come pick up bulky items worth more than $100.00 – for free. And then, people can shop for great stuff at great prices. Delivery of bulky items is also available.”

To donate "stuff" to the sale, bring all items to 536 Crescent Blvd. Drop off dates and times are:
Saturday, September 19th, 9am-noon
Saturday, September 26th, 9am-noon
Saturday, October 3rd, 9am-noon
Wednesday, October 7th, 5pm-9pm

To schedule a pickup, call 630-858-9171
Tax receipts will be provided for all donations

On October 10 and 11 Sale begins at 9am each day – closes at 4pm. Doors open for Early Birds on October 10 at 8am. $25 early entry fee. Delivery of bulky items available.

Juna Amagara, founded in 2004, operates Children’s Homes, schools, vocational programs and medical facilities in very remote villages of Uganda. The organization hosts 20-60 visitors from the U.S. annually. With more than 350 children under care, the organization has grown more than 50% per year since inception.

Funding for the organization comes from child sponsorships and donations from churches, individuals and foundations nationwide. Funds from this event will be used to provide food, shelter, clothing, medical care and school fees for children in Mbarara, Uganda.
