Business will hold community-wide garage sale

by Heidi Alder

A truly charitable wind is blowing through the Carson Valley, coming from the direction of Western Title Company, Inc.

The employees of Western Title are rallying together to hold their very first company fund-raising garage sale July 24, from 7 a.m.-noon.

“All the proceeds will go to a needy family or individual,” said Jim Jones, business development representative. “We really haven’t picked who, yet.”

The company has made donations to groups before, but this is the first garage sale, Jones explained.

They would appreciate any community-donated supplies, but they’re counting on the employees to gather enough materials, Jones said.

The event was the idea of Nicole Peterson, escrow technician, and she is the head organizer.

“We all make a living in this community, and we feel it is important to help those less fortunate than us,” Jones said.

The garage sale will be held in the parking lot of Western Title Company, Inc., located at 1626 Highway 395, Minden, July 24, from 7 a.m.-noon.
