St. Louis – The Salvation Army’s Maplewood community center, located at 7702 Rannels Avenue in Maplewood is hosting a fundraiser garage sale on October 1, 2011 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. The garage sale will be held in conjunction with the Brentwood/Richmond Heights/Maplewood Tri-City garage sale to be held the same day.

The Salvation Army will offer new merchandise and gift cards donated by area businesses to be sold at a fraction of their retail value. Additional donations are being accepted through the date of the event.

 Local vendors and residents may secure indoor vendor space to sell merchandise. Vendor space is available at $15 for one table and two chairs. Admission to the event is free. Concessions will be available during the event.

 All proceeds will go to benefit The Salvation Army’s World Services, which provides food, shelter, disaster relief, medicine and hope to the world’s suffering.

 Those interested in donating or securing vendor space may contact the Maplewood community center directly at (314) 781-5434.
