World’s Biggest Garage Sale Raises Over 68,000 Pounds

The World’s Biggest Garage Sale, held at Twin Lakes Church in Aptos on May 5th, was a huge success! Now in its second year, the event raised $22,700. Since Second Harvest can purchase three pounds of food for every dollar raised, that’s 68,100 pounds of food! With a few donations still coming in, it looks like they’ll easily reach 70,000 pounds.

Thanks to all the Twin Lakes Church volunteers and to everyone in the community that either donated or purchased items—or both! Special thanks to  Gwenda Baker and Laurie Schlaepfer for all of their hard work.
