NEO yard sale fundraiser planned


On Oct. 12, the nonprofit organization New Events & Opportunities will host its third annual Yard Sale Fundraiser from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Blockbuster Video parking lot at 736 Taylorville Road. The funds raised will help provide healthy, fun and meaningful activities for youth in the community.

At this fundraising event, NEO will also have live youth performances, art pieces and treats for sale, and the parking lot will be full of unwanted items looking for a new home. Come on out and grab yourself something nice while also contributing to a much-needed cause in our community!

In the last five years, NEO has hosted more than 300 New Events & Opportunities for youth in more than 25 different locations in the community and is dreaming big with plans to open a full time, permanent youth center. The creators behind NEO truly believe it takes a village to raise a child and will have a signup list at the yard sale for people who are interested in getting involved with NEO by sharing their resources, skills, time, interests and/or passions with youth. With your help, NEO can make this dream a reality.

Future plans for the youth center will be displayed, and suggestions from the community will be taken. Encourage the kids you know to take part in this event and add their ideas. Let’s build a brighter future for the youth of tomorrow by empowering the youth of today!

If you would like to donate items for this event, please contact Blockbuster store manager Sonia Britt at 530-271-0628.
