Sharpsburg girls hold yard sale, raise money for Humane Society

September 07, 2007

A yard sale held by two young Washington County residents on Aug. 18 was a resounding success. Skyler Casto and Natalie Reeder, both of Sharpsburg, raised $250 in one afternoon for the Humane Society of Washington County.

On a clear, crisp morning, a Corgi named Daisy greeted shoppers who stopped by to see the wide variety of items for sale.

The girls spent weeks planning the yard sale, collecting items of their own and from family members. Deana Casto, Skyler's mother, helped by donating antique postcards for the girls to sell. A big seller was the handmade jewelry the girls spent many hours creating.

"We were surprised and delighted when Ms. Casto contacted us about the yard sale. What a nice thing for the girls to do," said Paul Miller, executive director of the Humane Society of Washington County. "They did a fantastic job."

In addition to planning and hosting the yard sale, the girls also composed a heartfelt poem promoting humane treatment of animals and presented it to the staff at the Humane Society of Washington County. The poem is posted on the Humane Society's new Web site at hswcmd.org.
