The donations for this year's LRPG Community Yard Sale have been rolling in! The sale is scheduled for Saturday, April 9, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Peralta playground (on Alcratraz Ave., 1/2 block east of Telegraph). Thanks to all of you who have donated to our community effort to support Peralta Elementary and Claremont Middle School.

We would love to have more items from upper grade elementary school and middle school kids. Do you have stuff your big kid has grown out of? We'd love:

  • big-kid clothes
  • sports equipment
  • bikes
  • Yu-gi-oh/Pokemon/trading card collections

Please consider donating them to this year's yard sale! We have tons of little kid stuff, but we know big kids need to shop too!

We will be having another drop off Wednesday March 30, from 10 am to 12 pm.  Email Nicole Aruda (nicaruda AT earthlink DOT net) for the secret drop-off location.
