Capri Students Hosting Garage Sale for Charity

Most kids spend their Saturday morning catching up on cartoons, but one group of Encinitas kids will be working to help raise money for a worthy cause.

This Saturday Capri Elementary fourth-grade student Anna de la Fuente and her friends will be hosting a garage sale fundraiser for Voices for Children, a group that provides volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates to abused children in San Diego County.

“The whole idea started when my teacher told us she thinks we’re here for a reason and most people's reason is to help the world,” Anna said. “That day I came home from school saying I am here to help the world and I'm going to start now.”

She organized a group of volunteers and lined up donations for Saturday’s garage sale, which will be from 8:30 a.m. to noon at 1808 Wilstone Avenue in Encinitas. You can expect to find plenty of bargains on toys, books, bikes, household items, clothing, and more—all for a very worthy cause, Anna said.

“I chose Voices for Children because when I was thinking about charities to donate to, my Mom told me about Voices for Children, “she said. “Later I looked at their website and thought this sounds amazing!”

“We're hoping to make a lot of money on Saturday, and we really hope it doesn't rain!”
