Local residents who stopped by 609 South Convent Road in Aston from Friday through Sunday were able to get a great bargain on jewelry, clothes, or books, and do a good deed in the process.
The brainchild of Sr. Frances Cassidy, the yard sale has blossomed into an annual event. Sr. Frances spent nearly three decades in Africa teaching children, and her heart never left the area.
With nearly $500 needed for a year of schooling, many Kenyan families cannot afford it. In previous years, the Sisters have been able to bring in between $4,000 and $5,000, ensuring that eight to ten children got to attend school for a year.
“I ask people to come and see for themselves how spending a few dollars at the yard sale can help others in such a positive and major way,” said Sr. Frances.
