Humility of Mary Housing Inc. will hold its semi-annual Fresh Start Benefit Sale from 5-8 p.m. Oct. 12 and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 13 at the donation center at 3805 Mississippi Ave., Davenport.

The sale continues a 23-year tradition of providing gently used or new house wares, bedding, toys, jewelry, gift items, furniture, books, games, clothing and much more.

Donations for the sale can be dropped off between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Humility of Mary Housing has 47 apartments for families in the program and needs single beds, dressers and sofas to help furnish these apartments. Donations are accepted throughout the year at the donation center.

Donated items that cannot be used to furnish apartments or by the families are put in the sale to benefit Humility of Mary Housing to provide housing and program services for homeless single parents and their children.
