There will be a garage sale from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the American Legion Hall, 400 S. Spencer in Newton.

All new and used items for sale have been donated. Donations have come from American LEgion and American Legion Auxiliary members and from the Newton community.

Proceeds from the sale go to supply the Legion’s Veterans Christmas Shop in Wichita with gift items for the veterans to select and send as gifts. They also help pay for postage to mail their items. For inservice military, they purchase and send personal items they need, such as soap, wipes, deodorant, decks of cards and anything on the requested list.

They also donate to local charities. Recently, the group donated $200 toward the purchase of cotton shirts requested for the Newton military group in Africa. They also donated to the Salvation Army Back to School project. They’ve also sponsored and put on a children’s Christmas party for the community.
