Yard sale used as a fundraiser

| September 9, 2013

saleWEST LAFAYETTE – At least one sale during the West Lafayette Yellow Flag event was about more than just getting rid of unwanted items.

Tammy Adams was overwhelmed by the kindness people showed during the yard sale and food stand setup to benefit her son, Mason Powell, who has Hodgkin Lymphoma.

“People from work came to get sandwiches and just gave me a handful of money they collected,” she said.

Adams works at Lafayette Pointe, but people from Yankee Wire also came and supported her cause.

“We had a long line of them,” she said. “Everyone has been so supportive of us today.”

She also was thankful to those who helped organize the fundraiser.
