Doing some spring cleaning? The Women Rising Project needs your stuff! Yes, it's almost time for the fourth annual Women Rising Spring Garage Sale, with proceeds supporting the project's activities for HIV-positive women and their families.

Items in useable condition will be greatly appreciated. Especially sale-worthy are: clothing and accessories for men, women, and children (spring and summer) and for infants and toddlers; household goods and linens; toys, bikes, tools, CDs and tapes, yard and garden tools, small appliances and electronic equipment (in working order, please!), and small furniture. (Due to space limitations, large furniture can be accepted by special arrangement only. Call 406-6150 to ask!)
