The return of warm weather here in Toronto has us thinking about breaking out the patio furniture this weekend to bask in the long-awaited sunshine. If you’re planning to do the same, consider sorting through some of those other boxes that have been taking up precious storage space and getting involved in the Royal LePage National Garage Sale for Shelter, which runs this Saturday, May 14th.

Just bring your gently used items to participating Royal LePage offices across Canada and they’ll take care of the rest. Apart from offering some great bargains to eager shoppers, organizers will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale to The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, which helps Canadian women and children affected by family violence.
