Civil Air Patrol Holds Fundraiser

YARD SALE FOR CIVIL AIR PATROLCENTRAL POINT, Ore. — The largest Civil Air Patrol Squadron in Oregon is holding a fundraiser yard sale.

This is the second year for the yard sale that raises money for the volunteer organization. The program has been in place since World War II. It provides the community with aerospace education along with cadet and emergency services. All money to keep for the program either comes from public or private donors. Each year it costs roughly $3,000 for the program and the flight hanger. The yard sale brings in a large portion of the needed funds.

“It serves two purposes. It gets a little more floor space in the garage and also raises money for a good cause,” said Capt. Herman Dennington, Medford Civil Air Patrol.

Last year the yard sale fundraiser collected close to $2,000 for the Medford Civil Air Patrol. This year officials are hoping to raise that same amount.
