Helping Hand at Longford is hosting a “monster” garage sale to raise funds so the volunteer organisation can expand their services.

The emergency relief service provides food parcels, fire wood and assistance with bills, but president Barb Baker said the demand for the service was growing.

“We’re provide a hand up, not a hand out,” she said.

“We get grants, but we rely on the community for donations. This Longford community is so generous.”

The garage sale will be held at the Uniting Church at Longford on April 29.

The organisation will also host a cocktail party and auction at Happy Chef on May 12.   

To be involved with the garage sale or attend the cocktail party contact Barb on 0408 911 491.
