Save a Child’s Life by Donating the Things You Don’t Need.

We are acccepting items for next month's rummage sale on May 10th to help UNICEF rescue refugee children from Syria. Three years on, 5.5m children are in need.

We are especially looking for ethnic items: jewelry, art, rugs, baskets, textiles, shoes, bags, ethnic clothes, books, CDs, and small furniture items. No everyday clothes, please.

Bring the items to the United Nations ASsociation Center at 6242 E. Speedway, (10-5) between Bookmans and Beyond Bread in the Monterey Village shopping center.

For pickups, call Joan Safier, 615-7644.
