The Hilo Betsuin Buddhist Women’s Association will hold its annual “Super Garage Sale” on Saturday, Aug. 3, from 7 to 11 a.m. at the Honpa Hongwanji Hilo Betsuin Sangha Hall. BWA members will be out in force, selling a truckload of items donated by church members and friends. The sale is the BWA’s largest project of the year and allows the organization to make substantial monetary contributions to help fund projects of the Hilo Betsuin.
In addition to its contributions to the Hilo Betsuin, the BWA also donates walker bags and lap blankets to Hale Anuenue, Life Care Center, Legacy Hilo and Hawai‘i Care Choices Pohai Malama Care Center. Members also volunteer at the Peanut Butter Ministry, Blood Bank of Hawaii and Project Dana.
Admission to the “Super Garage Sale” is free and ample parking is available. For more information, call co-chairs, Karen Maedo at (808) 935-3506 or Jane Iida at (808) 345-1718.
