Garage sale to fund camp for autistic

Bloomington-Normal’s Young Professional Kiwanis Club will host the fifth annual Autism Society of McLean County garage sale from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Crossroads Center.

Items can be donated for the sale at the Crossroads Center from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday. Monetary donations are also encouraged.

Proceeds will go towards a summer camp at Lake Bloomington for children with autism, which allows the children to canoe, swim, horseback ride, play and make friends in a safe and supportive environment.

The camp costs from $225 to $250 per child. The proceeds of the garage sale will aid those who would otherwise not be able to afford the price.

The Autism Society of McLean County will also be hosting several other events this month in honor of Autism Awareness month.

Events will include a fundraiser at Meatheads, Movies for Children with Special Needs at Starplex Cinemas and a Night Out for Parents and Caregivers at Alexander’s Steakhouse.
