Over the weekend, RIO hosted an extremely successful, multi-vendor Parking Lot Sale. Many of RIO’s staff, Independent Living Skills clients, and members of the community purchased spaces to sell their garage sale-type items from. We had tons of great items for sale, and buyers from as far as Long Beach and Cerritos came to shop! Before the sale even opened at 7:00am, shoppers were already showing up! Our parking lot was non-stop packed for the entire sale, which we ended around noon.
Our Independent Living Skills (ILS) clients were each very successful, selling their own items. While working one-on-one with an ILS staff member, the clients practiced money-handling and sales skills. This was an amazing opportunity for them!
We plan to host another sale this year, and have already started collecting donation items. If you would like to donate, please contact Debbie at 714-633-7400, ext. 269. If you’re interested in hosting your own booth, keep an eye on our website for our next sale date! Thank you to all who purchased booth spaces, donated items, and shopped! Our sale was a huge success! 🙂
