In 2018, Futuro Brillante started a new initiative to organize monthly garage sales of donated gently used clothing and household items to support community projects. Local committees fill out an application to participate and are required to send volunteers to staff the sale.
The very first sale, which was held on April 2, was a huge success! The benefitting group was the Youth Soccer Team, which was raising funds for new equipment and transportation. A total of 128,775 colones was raised for their projects.
The following groups also participated in 2018:
● June 5, Older Adult Association of Matapalo, 101,300 colones was raised for their food program
● August 3, Sixth Grade Parents’ Committee, 128,600 colones was raised for the graduation dinner
● September 18, Typical Dance Group Alma Costera, 61,000 colones was raised for their projects
● October 16, Music School of Matapalo, 71,150 colones was raised for their projects
● November 16, Children’s Church Choir, 58,850 colones was raised for their projects
