We accepted donations from anyone who wished to give items such as clothes, furniture, household items, outdoor items, exercise equipment…anything that was in good condition. We raised between $500 – $1000 per garage sale.

We were given a table at the entrance to promote S.O.U.L. where we offered bottled water for a donation and passed out literature and talked to people about S.O.U.L. In the vendor room we had a table where we sold merchandise and could further spread the word about the purpose of S.O.U.L. There was a silent auction held in which 100% of the proceeds went to S.O.U.L. The Guide will sponsor S.O.U.L. at there next two festivals.
