Signs will be put up in the area for those who need directions.

Christopher Ashburn, coordinator for The Daily News N.I.E. program, said this rummage sale is a way to connect with the community and raise money for N.I.E. to work toward raising literacy rates.

“People are encouraged to come check out our rummage sale and help support a great cause, while coming together as a community and showing their support for Newspapers In Education, as well as support for the youth in our area,” Ashburn said.

All proceeds benefit Newspapers In Education, which is a non-profit program that works toward raising literacy rates in the local area by providing newspapers and other teaching resources to teachers and students in our communities.
