Community Garage Sale

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Maine Township Community Garage Sale will not be held this year.

Maine Township’s 16th annual 80-family Community Garage Sale will be held, rain or shine, in September 2020 (exact date TBD) from 9 AM to 3 PM in the parking lot of Maine Township Town Hall, 1700 Ballard Road, Park Ridge. Space reservations for Maine Township residents will be accepted beginning August 3, 2020 at 9 AM and on August 10, 2020 at 9 AM for all others. Spaces are sold on a first-come, first-served basis and always sell out quickly.

All shoppers can register to win a children’s bicycle that will be given away. Free coffee will be provided courtesy of Maine Township Supervisor Laura J. Morask, and donuts and lunch items will be available to purchase. Don’t miss this popular event filled with bargains and fun for the whole family! View our video from last year’s event.

The event is organized by the MaineStay Youth & Family Services Department of Maine Township and was sponsored in 2019 by Chicago Behavioral Hospital, International Bank of Chicago, Journal & Topics Newspapers, Suburban Resource Guide for Seniors, Senior News 50 and Better, Parkway Bank, Law Offices of Laura J. Morask, Garvey’s Office Products, and Arrow Road Construction.

All proceeds from the event benefit the Adventure Maine Township Summer Camp. This camp program, coordinated by the Township’s MaineStay division for the past 17 years, provides at-risk youth who qualify based on family income the opportunity to participate in safe, fun, and educational experiences to which they may not otherwise have access.
