Proud of the way our city rallied to help Nepal victims

On May 31, our neighborhood held a garage sale for the benefit of earthquake victims in Nepal.

On May 31, our neighborhood held a garage sale for the benefit of earthquake victims in Nepal.

We would like to thank all those people who donated the extraordinary array of items for sale, all who stopped by to simply offer their best wishes and a cash donation, and the many volunteers who gave their time and energy to help make the afternoon a success.

In the space of a little over five hours, the sale raised more than $9,600 for the benefit of Lho, a village high in the Himalayas, and the SMD School in Kathmandu for children from mountain villages.

The garage sale was one of a number of separate efforts in Red Deer to help victims of the devastating earthquakes in Nepal, and we salute everyone who is helping.

We are very proud of our city.
