Kids ‘4’ Kids to Hold Annual Charity Yard Sale on Saturday in West Chester

By
Kids "4" Kids will hold its annual yard sale for charity on Saturday, May 20.

It started out simply enough.

Collect unwanted items from family and friends, hold a yard sale to hawk those wares, and donate the earnings to charity.

That was in 2013, when then-nine-year-old Molly Dolan of West Chester started a club called Kids “4” Kids. The effort raised a few hundred dollars for local charities that year.

Fast forward to today, and Kids “4” Kids has raised more than $3,400 since that initial yard sale. Last year, after Kids “4” Kids expanded and grew into a service club at Peirce Middle School, it raised more than $2,400 at its charity yard sale in 2016.

Dolan and her classmates at Peirce are at it again, and will hold their largest Kids “4” Kids yard sale yet on Saturday, May 20, from 8 AM-1 PM at 1084 Forest Road in West Chester.

Shoppers will have the opportunity to pick up bargains on hundreds of items, including:

  • baby gear and strollers
  • toys
  • sports equipment
  • video games
  • electronics
  • CDs
  • bikes
  • books
  • board games
  • outdoor toys
  • countless other household items

All items will be priced as “pay what you feel is fair,” virtually guaranteeing all visitors will walk away having scored a great deal. The yard sale will also have a festival feel to it, with a lemonade stand, baked goods for sale, and a moon bounce donated by Boing! Bounce Rentals of Media.

Students also solicited other local businesses to support the event, and those contributing to the event include Giant (Bradford Plaza in West Chester) and The Pretzel Factory (West Chester).

Dolan, a seventh-grade student at Peirce, and her classmates in the Kids “4” Kids Club have held frequent meetings throughout the year, working on various activities to help other children in need, and planning for the group’s big yard sale fundraiser.

They have spent the past month gathering donations for the yard sale from their families, friends, and neighbors. This year, the students decided on four charities that will receive funds raised at the yard sale:

  • The Friends Association for the Care and Protection of Children
  • Special Olympics
  • The Dax Locke Foundation
  • No Stomach for Cancer
