Kansas Youth Empowerment Academy will be hosting its annual fundraising garage sale/bake sale on May 30th.  The fundraiser Garage Sale/Bake Sale will be from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm in the KYEA parking lot (517 SW 37th St., Topeka).

RCIL will also be holding a Kansas Equipment Exchange (KEE) equipment drive that day. KEE is designed to move medical equipment, such as wheelchairs, scooters, hospital beds, etc., that is not being used, to Kansans who need the devices. The program accepts donated equipment, cleans and repairs it if necessary, and then places that equipment with individuals who need it.

How can you help? You can donate items for the garage sale including: decorative items, kitchen ware, used DVDs & CDs, small pieces of furniture, small working appliances, books, blankets, sheets, toys in working condition, etc. please no clothing or shoes. These items need to be delivered to KYEA by Friday May 22nd.  No garage sale items you say?  That’s okay, bake something! KYEA will be excepting baked items on May 28th and 29th.  Remember all funds raised benefit Kansas Youth with disabilities! 

So remember, May 30th bring your durable medical equipment to donate to other Kansans in need and buy some items at KYEA’s garage sale to help empower Kansas youth with disabilities!
