"The Garage Sale is a fun place to shop and find treasures, but the bigger picture here is the children whose lives are improved by the treatment they receive at The Settlement Home."
- Settlement Club member
Each year, more than 25,000 shoppers flock to The Settlement Home Charity Garage Sale at Palmer Events Center (900 Barton Springs Road) to get their hands on unique items and bargain priced merchandise. Shoppers browse in our 21 different "departments," such as clothing, shoes, jewelry, toys, furniture, books, linen, art, holiday items and so much more. 100% of the proceeds go to The Settlement Home for Children.

The Annual Garage Sale provides an opportunity for The Settlement Home for Children to not only help the children we serve, but also the Central Texas non-profit community. Through our Giving for Living program on Sunday, The Settlement Home provides vouchers to more than 50 Central Texas non-profits. These non-profits distribute the $25 vouchers to their clients who are in need of essential items, such as clothing, baby clothes and toys, kitchen items and more. The clients use these vouchers to pay for items at the Garage Sale.
This year, we adopted Lanier High School as part of our Giving for Living program. We provided each Lanier High School student with a shopping certificate to spend on Sunday at the Garage Sale.
Sponsors are needed to support this program. If you are interested in sponsoring Giving for Living certificates, email [email protected].
