The first Donation Drive Day was held in Lakeway on August 6. The Lakeway community was out in full force, volunteering and donating items for the Garage Sale. Members of the Lakeway Women in Network (L.W.I.N.) organized and volunteered at the donation drive, which was hosted by Papa Murphy's in Lakeway.
Furniture, clothing, toys, collectibles and much more were donated. Volunteers filled an entire box truck with boxes and bags full of items. Papa Murphy's gave out free medium pizzas to anyone who donated item for the Garage Sale.
Items collected from the Donation Drive will be sold at the 36th Annual Settlement Home for Children Charity Garage Sale, November 3 through 6, at Palmer Events Center in Austin. All proceeds from the Garage Sale benefit The Settlement Home.
The event was such a big success, that plans are already underway for a second donation drive in 2012.
Thank you to L.W.I.N. members, Bridge and Michael Bertram of Papa Murphy's in Lakeway and Gene Arant Realty.
