Charity Garage Sale

We all have stuff.  Things that are still good, but aren't your favorites anymore.  Don't let them lurk in your life.  Clean the clutter by donating it to our Charity Garage Sale. 

If you own a business, we can accept your donations as well.  Past corporate donors include: Liberty Theater, Tyler Museum of Art and Geek World.

We have a few charity garage sales each year.

RUBBER DUCKY TOILETRIES DRIVE

 

Diapers, Toothbrushes, Tampons, Shampoos, Soaps, Combs and many other toiletries that we take for granted are often in short supply at local assistance agencies.  We saw the need and decided to restock their toiletry shelves with a Rubber Ducky Toiletry Drive.  

Members of the community rallied together and gathered:

  • 144 Toothbrushes
  • 300 Razors
  • 26 Lip Glosses
  • 750 Baby Wipes
  • 350 Diapers
  • 150 Toothpastes
  • 300 Pads
  • 500 Tampons
  • 500 Soaps
  • 144 Combs

AND a landslide of shampoos, lotions, deodorants, and toilet paper rolls!

The donations were given to PATH in Tyler to distribute to our neighbors who need them.
 

Help us gather needed items.

Our Rubber Ducky Drive takes place in April each year.

WHITE CHAIRS

People were standing by bus stops, because there were no places to sit.  We thought they might be tired, so we brought them white chairs.  

On these white chairs, we printed words, reenforcing the Worthy Portraits.  Our goal is to remind passers-by that they are worthy, and to remind them that others are worthy as well.

Big thanks to Hogg Middle School and all of the other individuals who donated chairs for this project!

Do you have wooden chairs lying around?  We want them!

WORTHY PORTRAITS

Artist, Nora Schreiber looked around and saw worthy people, but noticed that the world didn't always share her opinion.  She started this project to see if she could create a forced positive first impression.

First Impressions rule the world.  What lies under the surface?  Who are you misjudging?  Take a new, fresh look at the people around you with our Worthy Portraits.

Worthy Portraits introduces you to people from different areas of life with a positive word that describes each person specifically.  With this project, we hope to give you a glimpse of who these people are, and not just what they look like.  

The portraits were displayed at the locations below.
