Nativity School Garage Sale Successful
DUBUQUE- Parishioners and alumni of the Nativity School walked the halls one last time over the weekend.
The Church of the Nativity hosted a garage sale to sell a variety of donated items. Donations included for-sale items and items salvaged from the historic Nativity School
There was glassware and clay figurines to antique clocks, chairs, and so much more.
All together, the church raised over $20,000! Over $6,000 came in just from school memorabilia alone.
“We’re very happy with it this year,” church parishioner Greg McGinn says. “It’s been well covered as far as advertising and the public coming out for it has just been fantastic.”
All of the money raised from the garage sale is going towards the school demolition costs. In total, it will cost almost $400,000.
