Two-day SPCA garage sale underway in Williams Lake

All proceeds raised go to help local animals

Volunteers are busy getting ready for the annual BCSPCA garage sale taking place in Williams Lake Saturday and Sunday.

“We are open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days,” said branch manager Liz Dighton as she continued to place items on tables.

All proceeds raised from the sale go toward helping local animals.

“Everything is by donation, but we are hoping people will be dropping some $20s and $50s,” Dighton added.
