DSI & Tree City Estates to host annual yard sale and cookout

Greensburg — Developmental Services Inc. (DSI) and income-based apartment complex Tree City Estates will host a massive yard sale June 7 to 9 and a large cook-out June 8.

DSI has been providing services to disabled adults and children since 1975, offering opportunities that would not have been available otherwise through job placement and classes, as well as other services. With state and federal funding taking huge hits in recent years, DSI has been forced to seek out other methods of raising enough funds to stay in operation and still be able to provide vital services to those who need them.

The apartments were developed by DSI and Keller Development and are managed by New Generation Management. Tree City Estates is a 64 unit apartment complex and all of the residents have been encouraged to participate in the upcoming yard sale, the proceeds of which will fund future services for challenged individuals. The yard sale will take place outside at the apartment complex, which is located at 1511 West Aspen Lane in Greensburg, behind the Urgent Care facility.

From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday, the yard sale will be open and organizers will be eager to assist customers with purchases. This is the second annual community yard sale hosted by DSI and organizer Chris Ramey looks forward to continuing the tradition for many years.

“We just want to get people out here to have fun and see what we’ve got going on,” Ramey said. “It’s a beautiful property and most people don’t even know we’re here.”

With 64 residents and most of them participating in the yard sale, there will be a huge variety of item available. In addition to the shopping bliss sure to be found with so much for sale, there will be several games and fun events available.

Saturday, June 8, DSI will have its annual cookout fundraiser at the yard sale, with hamburgers, hot dogs, and bottled water available for $1 each. There will also be snow cones, popcorn, and other snacks for sale. Greensburg Fire Department members will be on hand to provide fire safety lessons. All proceeds from the cookout will go to the DSI Relay for Life team.

Also at Tree City Estates from June 7-9 will be a separate yard sale hosted by Lucy’s Rescue Center, a no-kill animal shelter that hopes to earn enough money to open its doors. All of the proceeds go directly toward the funding of the rescue center. Lucy’s Rescue Center is currently looking for any unwanted items that could be used in the sale to help raise money.

Anyone with items to donate to Lucy’s Rescue Center, or with questions about the DSI/Tree City Estates yard sale and cookout should contact Chris Ramey at 812-614-3036 for more information.
