The Citizens for Adequate Housing (CAH) homeless family shelters will hold the first annual Moms for Moms Yard Sale on Saturday, May 10 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 40 Washington St. in Peabody.

Generously sponsored by Phil Richard Insurance, Eastern Bank, and the Rotary Club of Peabody, the sale will feature children’s toys, gently worn and clean children’s clothing, furniture, books, cribs, strollers, games, and more.

In addition to the yard sale, there will be a craft for children to make something for mom and refreshments provided by West Congregational Church. Donations can be dropped off that morning between 5 and 6:30. All proceeds will benefit CAH’s programs for families experiencing homelessness.

“An event like this has a way of bringing everyone together,” says Corey Jackson, CAH executive director. “The needs in our area continue to grow and we anticipate this event will expand every year as a way to build an even stronger bond with all of our neighbors.”

The Inn Between and Inn Transition now house over 24 families and have an additional five families in Salem and Lynn. The agency also works with hundreds of families across the North Shore to stabilize their housing situations. The agency has placed a priority on increasing the area’s affordable housing stock with purchases of property for its Inn Homes program. Over the past several years, CAH has secured 15 low-income rental units for families in need.

“This event is to celebrate families and to honor the role of moms in our CAH community and the general community. We are looking forward to a fun event and hope to have a great turnout,” said Libby Tangney, CAH president and event chair.
