Domestic violence center seeks support from benefit yard sales


August 30, 1994|By NATALIE HARVEY

Yard sales are fall's version of spring flowers. They seem to pop up on lawns, driveways and open spaces. If you are planning an October yard sale, the Howard County Domestic Violence Center would appreciate your support by sharing a percentage of your profits with the center or by sponsoring a yard sale for its benefit.

Involve your neighbors and have a co-op yard sale for the center. Call 997-0304 and list your sale as part of their October fund-raiser.
