For the past 9 years, “The Bush Bunch” have organized an annual garage sale raising money for Autism Ontario – Peel Chapter, and Autism Speaks. Giving back to the community and sharing their knowledge and experience with autism is part of their life as a family.
What started as their little garage sale 9 years ago, has led to a wonderful annual community event, raising more than $74,000 for Autism and sending 45 families with Autism to a weekend overnight camp for free. The family hand delivers over 5,000 flyers to homes in their community requesting items to be donated for their garage sale. They rally local business and community members for support with printing flyers, donating the tent, providing gift cards and items to raffle off at the garage sale. They even offer coffee and bake cookies in the shape of the Autism puzzle piece for the sale.
This is the Bush Bunch’s 10th and FINAL year for their garage sale (held over 2 weekends this year – April 27th, April 28th, May 4th and May 5th, 2019) raising money and making a difference in their community. This year they are once again supporting Autism Ontario – Peel Chapter, sponsoring another 15 families to attend camp this summer, as well as Autism Speaks Canada, to provide further research and support within the community.
