A garage sale to benefit Burien’s Ruth Dykeman Children’s Center (RDCC) will be held Saturday, June 19th from 9am to 4pm at the center’s campus, located at 1033 Southwest 152nd Street.

There will be many unique items available and 100 percent of all proceeds will go towards helping the children.

According to their website:

For 88 years, Ruth Dykeman Children’s Center (RDCC) has served the needs of the community through its residential, home and community-based services.  Helping children, families, and communities achieve success and self-sufficiency is the primary goal of each of the programs RDCC offers.

In 1921, Judge King Dykeman saw many young women who needed support outside the home but there were no appropriate services for them. To address this problem, he founded Ruth School for Girls, which later became Ruth Dykeman Children’s Center. Originally, the agency was located in Seattle’s Ravenna district but moved to its present eight and a half acre campus on the shore of Lake Burien in 1931. Over the next 60 years, the agency slowly expanded its residential programs to serve boys and girls, ages 6 to seventeen, with serious behavioral, emotional and psychological disturbances. This is the same population being served today in the Behavioral Rehabilitation Services program.

Here are the details:
