Help raise money for a great cause

This Saturday, drop by the Child Development Association parking lot for a giant yard sale.

This Saturday, drop by the Child Development Association parking lot for a giant yard sale — and help raise money for a great cause.

Proceeds go to the Child Development Association’s Autism Program (TAP), and to purchase equipment for School District 71 break rooms.

The Autism Program provides therapy to hundreds of autistic children of all ages in the Comox Valley on a daily basis.

Break rooms in schools, equipped with items such as exercise balls and mini trampolines, help autistic children meet their physical and sensory needs, leading to improved learning outcomes and management of challenging behaviours. Standardized equipment is badly needed for break rooms in our school district.

The sale will be held May 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. behind the Child Development Association at the corner of Third Street and and Cliffe Avenue in Courtenay. The event is hosted by the Comox Valley Parent/Family Autism Spectrum Support Group (

Donations (no outdated electronics, please) can be dropped off from 8 to 10 a.m. the morning of the sale.
