Just 50 minutes from the busy life of Pattaya you will find the smaller city of Ban Chang and its local hospital. On the 3rd of April, PILC conducted the annual garage sale on the premises to raise funds for the food deliveries carried out by the hospital. For about 14 years PILC and others have been supporting the monthly food deliveries to the very poor organized by homecare nurse Mat.
The annual garage sale is supported by PILC members who for a year will be donating cloths, shoes, household items, toys, furniture among many other things towards the garage sale knowing that by their donations they will be supporting those in need.

This year’s garage sale was a huge success, raising 58,000 baht, and was enjoyed by all the participants both shoppers and organizers. It is a community event and something the locale shoppers look forward to just as much as the organizers do. Mat and president of PILC Helle Rantsen would like to extend a thank you to all those who supported the garage sale and have all ready started the collection for next year’s garage sale.
