Church holding free yard sale

North Cowichan Alliance Church is holding a garage sale where the items will be free, though donations are encouraged. The sale is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 21 from 9:30 a.m. to noon at the Clements Centre in Duncan.

Money raised from the sale will be used to help fight the Ebola crisis in Liberia.

"The money will be sent to Liberia where James and Kathleen Ngenda live and work with local church leaders," said a press release about the event. "At the present time, Kathleen is home in Canada but her husband James is currently in Liberia. He is working with church leaders to help educate people about Ebola and how they can protect and prevent the spread of the disease."

The money will also be used to provide relief supplies such as rice, beans and oil.

For more information call Marvin or Lynette Croswell at 250-748-5213.
