Mike’s Garage Sale

For the second year in a row, Mike Hanes will conduct “Mike’s Annual Charity Garage Sale.”  The charity event takes place at Mike’s residence on the corner of Second Street and Clinton Street in Goshen.  The event begins on Thursday, March 19 at 12 o’clock Noon until 6:00 P.M. and on Friday and Saturday, March 20 and March 21 from 8:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M.  Mike is accepting donations to help the charitable cause of Communities In Schools of Elkhart County.  Communities In Schools, or CIS, seeks to help kids stay in school and prepare for life by championing the connection of needed community resources with schools to help kids successfully learn, stay in school and prepare for life. 

The local CIS focuses on gang vulnerable youth in our community to help them veer from the destructive and wasteful path of gang involvement.  According to Joe Guerrero, Executive Director of the local CIS, many kids are dropped out of school every year because of gang involvement.  “Kids who are vulnerable to gangs usually become involved with gangs early and over time they become more and more involved.  We are seeing kids who are elementary school-aged become enamored with the gang style and culture, and by the time they are freshman and sophomore-aged, they are, in all practical terms, dropped-out of school.  By the time they are 15 or 16 years-old they have been in so much trouble and they have huge gaps missing in their educational experience that they often times just walk away from school, or are forced out due to their gang involvement, or are incarcerated and spend a great deal of their youth and young adult life behind bars,” Guerrero explained.  “CIS works to intervene early and help the kids and families break away from that deadly cycle.”

The CIS mission has been working in Elkhart County since August 2003 as a 501(c)3 charitable organization.  Donations are tax deductible.  To make a donation, or for more information about CIS, or Mike’s Annual Charity Garage Sale, please contact Joe Guerrero at 215-5255 or at joeg@stayinschool.biz
