Upcoming Garage Sale: A Neighbor Helps a Neighbor in need

Hello everyone, and Happy Labor Day Weekend!

While I love garage sales for a million reasons, there is a garage sale tomorrow with a story which pulls at my heart. Here is a quote from the story which is running in the Cranbury Press:

"MONROE — A neighbor and friend will be lending a helping hand this Saturday at a yard sale she organized that aims to benefit the husband and son of a woman who died in a Jamesburg house fire in June.

Crystal Vreeland, who is organizing the yard sale, said the bank is threatening to foreclose on George Lowenberg’s home on Gatzmer Avenue in Jamesburg.

Mr. Lowenberg’s wife, Jayme, died June 3 after handing her infant son, Derrick, to an off-duty fireman, then falling from an attic window of her home in an attempt to escape the burning house.

She died of the injuries she suffered from the fall.

Ms. Lowenberg’s sister, Michelle Gonzalez, also died from injuries suffered from the fire."

The garage sale will include home goods and furniture. What a great opportunity to help a local family!

The yard sale is at 213 Old Forge Road from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. I hope to see you there!
