Four Meaford youths who organized a charity yard sale last weekend in honour of their grandparents have raised $6,202 for the Meaford Hospital Foundation.
Abby Johnston and Shalyn, Farrah, and Summer Harding organized the event in memory of grandparents Bob and Wilda Harding, an undertaking that involved collecting hundreds of items from community members and local businesses to sell. The four girls spent many evenings preparing and sorting the donated items, and they also enlisted a team of bakers to donate tasty treats to offer their yard sale shoppers.
In a Facebook post published by the parents of the children after the yard sale, nearly 50 local businesses and individuals were thanked for supporting the event.
The money raised during the yard sale will be donated by the girls to the Meaford Hospital Foundation, in memory of Bob and Wilda Harding.
