The Leona Valley Annual Community Garage Sale
Leona Valley is a small community, with a big heart, that lies tucked away in the northwest corner of Los Angeles County. Each year the Leona Valley Improvement Association hosts a community-wide garage sale where residents have the opportunity to set up shop, so to speak, to sell those unwanted items, that are just taking up space, and earn a little extra cash for whatever the family might need. This year’s garage sale event took place on September 24, 2016.
In the photo above, Jackson is presenting Jan Clark, Sertoma CEO, a $5.00 donation, while stopping by Leona Valley Sertoma garage sale location that is participating in the Leona Valley Annual Community Garage Sale. Leona Valley Sertoma has been serving the community since December 1997 and is chartered through Sertoma International, a non-profit service organization. The name Sertoma comes from the phrase, “SERvice TO MAnkind” and Leona Valley Sertoma is fully commited to doing just that, they serve the Lakes and Valley communities and to make a difference through sponsorship of a variety of programs. For the most part the funds go to our special SPONSORSHIP needs, such as, the senior Christmas dinner, holiday baskets, scholarships, school projects and so many more.
Through their efforts they have always worked to improve the quality of life for those in their communities, wherever and whenever possible. Their efforts truly are making a difference and, if Spencer is any indication, that desire to help others is being passed on to those who will be the leaders of tomorrow. With the help of the Spencer children and so many other generous people, they are all helping to make a difference and are a part of the story that can only be called a “well rounded” success.
WE ARE GRATEFUL
