Niagara Falls, ON, April 21, 2016 – The City of Niagara Falls Recreation Committee is looking for Niagara residents to sell “garage sale” items out of their trunk, at the City’s first ever “Garage Sale at the Gale” to benefit the Activity Subsidy Fund. The “Garage Sale at the Gale” will take place on Saturday, June 25th, 2016 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm in the parking lot at the Gale Centre located at 5152 Thorold Stone Road.

“We need buyers and sellers to make this a success” said Paisley Janvary-Pool, Chair of the Recreation Committee. “This is the first time for a sale of this type in Niagara Falls! A city wide garage sale with people selling items from their trunk is such a fun idea! Best of all, proceeds from the Garage Sale at the Gale will benefit the City’s Activity Subsidy Fund.”

The Activity Subsidy Fund benefits many families in Niagara Falls by subsidizing the cost of recreation activities. Registration fees and equipment expenses are eligible and applications are received year round for the consideration of the Recreation Committee.

Do you have a garage or basement full of unwanted stuff? Why not join the fun and sell your unwanted items? You can make a few dollars while benefiting the City’s Activity Subsidy Fund!
