Harker Heights: Charity Hosts Holiday Bazaar

HARKER HEIGHTS (November 3, 2013) Hundreds came out to the annual Holiday Bazaar held in Harker Heights this weekend.

The Ladies of Charity hosted the event for the last 13 years to help raise funds for local and international charities, said Carolyn Farmerie, bizarre chairperson.

The organization displayed hundreds of items from jewelry, handbags, clothing, and other holiday crafts for participants to purchase.

"A lot of our things are hand made by out ladies and it just makes you feel good to do something for others that maybe can't do for themselves right now.," said Sylvia Schnapp, president of Ladies of Charity.

Ladies of Charity raised $13,000 during last year's event to help support those in need during the holidays.

"It brings the community together," Farmerie said.

"People love to help and they love to donate and they love to see the good thats done to help the people that are needy."

Participants were also treated to a breakfast and baked goods.

The funds raised would support charities such as Families in Crisis, Meals on Wheels, the food pantry, as well as poor families in Mexico and Cambodia, she said.

The organization will continue to accept donations at the Ladies of Charity thrift shop in 1005 South Ann Blvd.
