Niagara, ON: Pick up some great bargains on gently used items at a Giant Garage Sale and BBQ on Sunday, August 22, being organized by Niagara nurses to build a health clinic in Kenya.

Nurses with the Niagara Health System have been organizing and pricing furniture, bedding and linens, baby items and toys, small appliances, garden tools, sports and camping equipment, clothing, jewelry and more for the yard sale, taking place at the Royal LePage Plaza beside McDonalds on Niagara Street, Welland, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. A BBQ is also taking place during the sale.

Items from across Niagara have been collected and last-minute entries are welcome the morning of the sale.
