Garage sale to aid local, global charities

When Paulina Perkins, Residential Life director at Stephens College, heard about the December tsunami, her thoughts of sympathy immediately turned into action.

On Saturday, the Residential Life staff will have a garage sale to benefit tsunami relief efforts and the Central Missouri Food Bank. It will be from 7 a.m. to noon in the foyer of Stephens Auditorium, 22 Dorsey St.

The cost is $1 or two canned food items.

In past years, Residential Life held traditional food drives for the agency, but this year is different, said Erika Wobig, resident director of Stephens’ Prunty Hall.

“We wanted to help locally and globally,” she said.

Wobig has been in charge of collecting donations for the past month. So far, the group has collected an eclectic mix of items, including an antique chandelier, greeting cards and clothes.
