L’ARCHE’S YARD SALE
Our yard sales have become a valuable way of supporting many of our fellow citizens in maintaining their home budget, and have also proved to be a teaching tool in regards to mutual giving and receiving. At the yard sale, you can find used, well preserved clothes for children and grown-ups, as well as various small gifts, jewelry, toys, and other necessities. There is no price, which means that everyone can donate as much as they are able to. The yard sale has been one of our self-financing activities since 2007. The yard sale is traditionally held three times a year. Many volunteers and our fellow citizens are involved in organizing the yard sale. By connecting those who are different, the yard sale has become a place of gathering and solidarity, where each person has something to offer, regardless of their abilities.
Encouraged by many fellow citizens, as well as by the desire of our members with intellectual disabilities to find dignified work through which they would be able to help others, we are looking for ways to implement this initiative on a daily basis. In this way, the yard sale has become a social entrepreneurship initiative.
