MASON CITY – Joey VanZomeren, Executive Director of the Northern Lights Homeless Shelters would like to invite all of you to a huge warehouse sale at 600 4th St. SW, April 27th and 28th.

“We are going to be the early birds. We are going to start at six in the morning. We want you all to come and enjoy. Come have coffee with us, look around and see what we have to offer.”

Some things that will be for sale are household furniture, complete beds, dressers, couches, recliners, end tables, TV’s, tables w/chairs, misc. furniture, microwaves, housewares, pictures, lamps, nick-knacks, collectibles, toys, Christmas items, books, men’s, women’s and kids coats and clothes of all sizes…too much to list…must see, as their flyer says.

As Joey says, “The prices are right!”

It costs $14,000 a month to keep the five homeless shelters operating. All proceeds go the Northern Lights Homeless Shelters expenses.

In Mason City, the homeless shelters are the Emergency Shelter, Courage Hall, Walters House, Garrit House and the Trinity House of Hope for Women. The Emergency Shelter is a sixty day stay and for immediate use, located at 307 N. Monroe, The Courage Hall is for Veterans, Walters House is a transition housing and people can stay longer, The Garritt House is a permanent housing shelter for men that are disabled and located at 224 1st St SW and the Trinity House of Hope for Women and Children is a ninety day stay.

“We do help get people started, by giving them some of the items that are needed when they leave the shelters, but so much as been donated, an over abundance amount, that we need the room and the money will help with the monthly expenses,” Joey explains.

Northern Lights also has a store, Enchanted Cottage, by Community Kitchen. “It has new and close to new clothes,” said Lisa Hovden.

Joey continued by saying, “A couple stores went out of business and donated their stuff to use for the store.”

“So come to the warehouse sale Friday, from 6am to 6pm and Saturday from 8am to 4pm. Let’s keep the lights on for those in need,” said Joey.
