West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day

Next one 2022, we hope – presented by West Seattle Blog

After Your Sale: Here’s Who Wants Your Leftovers! (and other donations)

Updated 5/10/2019

West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day is not only a fun day of person-to-person recycling, it’s also a chance for local nonprofits to benefit from donations, either from sellers with leftovers they don’t want to keep, or shoppers who generously decide to buy items the nonprofits need, for the express purpose of donating them.

Here are the organizations/efforts hoping to synergize with WSCGSD this time around:

From the Stop ‘n’ Shop Thrift Store at the Senior Center of West Seattle in The Junction (4217 SW Oregon):

The West Seattle Senior Center’s Stop ‘n Shop would be thrilled to take your unsold garage sale merchandise after the sale day has ended. We’ll be staying open late until 6:00 pm and will have extra helpers ready to unload your vehicle from our back alley. Your unsold merchandise pays for many great programs and benefits for our wonderful local senior population. Thank you in advance!

The alley is off the south side of SW Oregon just east of California SW. Please see web site for items we take/don’t take.

STUFF THE TRUCK AT HOLY ROSARY: Happening again this year:

Annual STUFF THE TRUCK EVENT to benefit the needy. Sponsored by Holy Rosary St. Vincent de Paul Society.

Event to be held May 11th from 9:00 am-5:00 pm in the Holy Rosary School Parking Lot at 4139 42nd Ave SW. We will be happy to take your no longer needed clothing, books, toys and small household items. Unfortunately we cannot accept large furniture or appliances.

From West Seattle Christian Church:

Join us in doing good in the hood by joining West Seattle Helpline and Goodwill on Mother’s Day weekend. One of the best questions we can ask of ourselves is, “What good will I do today?” We have an answer for you on Saturday, May 11th. Join us from 2 pm to 5 pm at our WSCC Community Building (4401 42nd Ave SW) and help us sort clothes and houseware items for WS Helpline and Goodwill.

Didn’t sell all of your stuff on West Seattle Garage Sale Day?
This is the place to bring it! Please drive through our entrance off of 42nd Ave and deliver your stuff to our volunteer tables. All items will be sorted and donated to directly benefit both non-profit organizations, WS Helpline and Goodwill..

Also, from a new local group:

West Seattle Cares is a newly formed group with a focus on reaching out in friendship and service to our unhoused neighbors.

We are collecting supplies needed for those living unsheltered in our community. If you are participating in the WEST SEATTLE GARAGE SALE DAY and have any of the following items in GOOD condition remaining at the end of the day we would be happy to come collect them from you and donate to those in need.
