In early August of this year, Kathy Carey of Morris arranged all of her donated furniture, clothes, house wares and more on her lawn, driveway and sidewalk for her annual garage sale. As shoppers bought items, especially her big furniture items, she wondered if she would top her average earnings of $1,300 in her three day sale.
On Aug. 5, when the sale was over, Carey said she raised $2,300 in her garage sale which benefits March of Dimes.
Carey has taken the spot of the number two top donor for March of Dimes in Grundy County. “That doesn’t surprise me,” Greg Carrell, Director for March of Dimes Northeast Illinois Division.
“I my personal opinion, if I had a whole lot of Kathy Carey’s, I wouldn’t have a lot to do as a fundraiser,” Carrell said.
