Donny's Shining Light Yard & Craft Sale

| |

On Aug. 5th-6th, Donny's Shining Light, a local project in Illinois of Project Sweet Peas, will be hosting a yard sale/craft sale.

This event is made possible due to friends and family donating items to be sold. Every dollar raised will go towards buying or making items to go in the gift bags Donny's Shining Light delivers to the NICU.

Every little bit helps and Theresa sends out her heartfelt thanks and gratitude for all support sent their way. She helps other families who are in the same place she was once...please help her heart reach out to them. These gift bags offer such comfort and wonderful memories.
