Staff and volunteers from Capalaba’s Endeavour Foundation Recycled Clothing store are inviting members of the local community to join them for their first ever Car Park Market Day on Saturday 1 April.
Keen to raise funds and awareness, so that the local charity can help make possibilities a reality for people with a disability, store manager Karen O’Donnell says that by snapping up a great deal, shoppers will be opening up a wide world of opportunity for others.
“As an organisation, we focus on what people can do - their strengths and capabilities. Endeavour Foundation is proud of the contribution people with a disability make to the community, and delighted by the local support we receive for our mission.
“Proceeds from this event will enable our teams to partner with people with a disability to achieve their potential and pursue their dreams.
“As an added treat, we’ll be offering tastings of some of the fabulous food made by people with a disability at Endeavour Foundation’s Kingaroy Kitchen. I promise, you won’t be disappointed!”
Not only is there a sausage sizzle and plentiful bargains on offer, but the event will give shoppers the chance to meet the charity’s wonderful volunteers and learn a little more about Endeavour Foundation.
Glenda McAuslan began volunteering at the store a staggering 15 years ago, and is a core member of the local team.
“I was aware of the good of that Endeavour Foundation did and was familiar with the history when it started at Cooparoo, near where I lived as a child, so when I was looking for volunteering opportunities, I made the decision to join the local store.
“I enjoy serving people and the store managers at Cleveland and Capalaba, along with the many volunteers, make for a very pleasant atmosphere.”
The Car Park Market Day is on from 9am at 11 Dollery Road, Capalaba.
