Tons of yard sales, donate to charity, and more this Saturday

The North Columbia Heights Civic Association and the folks behind Columbia Heights Day are hosting a cool event on Saturday. As part of the NCHCA's Great Day of Service, there's going to be a community-wide yard sale with over 40 people holding their own sales around the neighborhood. In addition, there's a dropoff point for clothes and home goods which will go to Community of Hope. The press release is below, and at the bottom is a map of the yard sales. It sounds awesome. The Great Day of Service includes a number of non-profits which will have tables on the Civic Plaza to talk about their organizations.
