Bethel College Holds "Schools for Schools" Yard Sale

Bethel College will hold a yard sale Saturday April 21, 2007, from 7 a.m. - 1 p.m., at 105 E. Lowell Street, Mishawaka, Ind. (at the corner of Main Street and Lowell across from John Young Middle School). All proceeds will go straight to the Schools for Schools fund, giving children in Uganda an education and changing lives.

Also donations for items to be sold on Saturday will be accepted on Thursday, April 19, 2007, from 3 - 7 p.m. at 105 E. Lowell Street.

Schools for Schools is a program started by Invisible Children, Inc., a nonprofit organization based in California. Bethel College is participating in this program. Also, schools across America have been raising money to rebuild and restore schools in Uganda. The schools in Uganda have been destroyed by the 21-year long war that many do not know about.

For more information, please call Anthony Wiltse at 574. 220.6413.
