Genesis House raising money to help its cause

A northeast Missouri organization is raising money to help its cause.

The Genesis House Board is hosting a garage sale fundraiser this Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon at 203 Pelican Circle in the Southpoint Subdivision in Kirksville.

There will be clothes, toys and household items for sale.

All the money raised will go toward the new Genesis House in Edina, which will provide services and support to young single women and their families who face difficult times due to an unplanned pregnancy.

"It goes into providing for the. We don't ask them to pay for anything. It's all provided through the funds of the Genesis House for their living expenses and everything there," said Ruth Valkenaar of The Genesis House Board.

Not only is the organization raising money, it's also looking for house parents who can live at the house and support the soon-to-be mothers.
