Share Fair An Elk Valley Event

Check out the Share Fair, a free Elk Valley yard sale.

Spring cleaning? Well, this year unwanted and unused items can be headed to a new home with the Share Fair taking place on Saturday, June 2nd beginning at 9 a.m. The annual event, hosted by the LDS Church will see household items, toys and clothing being brought for donation and shared for free. “We began this many years ago to give people a chance to share what they had with others. Sometimes, people only need to get rid of a couple smaller items, or maybe one big one. Having just a few things doesn’t warrant holding a garage sale for, but those things can be brought to the share fair,” says project organizer L-A Simmons.

 

Gently used items can be brought to the LDS Church at any time by contacting Simmons, but an open drop off date is set for Friday, June 1st from 2 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Church. No money is accepted for any items donated or taken and any items remaining will be taken to the Sparwood New To You or the reuse center at the transfer station.

 

“We encourage everyone to bring their unwanted items, and come take what they need, there are a lot of great items already coming in.” says Simmons. “It’s also a great way to mix and mingle for the entire Elk Valley. Juice will be served on site and everyone is welcome. The Share Fair will be held at the LDS Church on 1301 Ponderosa Drive in Sparwood Heights. For more information, or to drop off items please call L-A Simmons at 250.865.7163.
