Parking lot sale to benefit family

Employees of the Modesto Irrigation District are holding a parking lot sale Saturday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. to benefit Modestan Angela Rodriguez and her family. Rodriguez has Guillain-Barré syndrome, a rare autoimmune disorder that affects the nervous system. The married mother of two young sons uses a wheelchair, but her family's 1981 van is wearing out, and friends and family want to help replace it.

The sale, in the parking lot at M and 11th streets, will include furniture, books, clothing, household items, sports equipment and more. There also will be free refreshments.

Donations are being sought, and pickup is available. For more information, call Greg Jennings at 380-7191.
