The Manchester Garage Sale volunteer-run initiative largest year-round fundraiser for Camp Courageous that not only provides financial assistance to Camp Courageous but also offers donors an opportunity to contribute to a cause that touches the lives of countless individuals.
The Manchester Garage Sale started out as a typical sale out of an actual garage by supporters to raise funds for Camp Courageous. The supporters made it an annual fundraiser and for years it moved to various locations from garages to buildings. The sale was originally open for a few days, but volunteers eventually kept it open for months at a time.
Today, the Manchester Garage Sale is open year-round and located in a building that has thousands of square feet of sale and warehouse space. What makes the Manchester Garage Sale truly extraordinary is the collective effort of the over 100 volunteers who pour their heart and soul into making it a resounding success.
One of the hallmarks of the Manchester Garage Sale is its engaging promotions that capture the spirit of giving. As the summer sun shines, the sale volunteers have come up with a “Christmas in July” event. This festive event, scheduled for the entire month of July, will showcase an array of holiday decorations, lights, trees, clothing, and other items.
Items can be dropped off at the sale located at 1121 E. Main Street in Manchester, IA during store hours. The sale is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM, Wednesdays from 9 AM to 6 PM, and Saturdays from 9 AM until noon.
