Friends of Children United Society (FOCUS) is looking forward to holding its annual Rummage Sale on June 11, 2022, with proceeds going to help disadvantaged children of Coronado and San Diego County. It is with thanks to the generosity and support of the Community that FOCUS is able to provide for those in need.

The gently used donated items have included various sized bicycles, exercise equipment, sports equipment from fishing rods, paddle boards to tennis racquets. Baby equipment, toddler toys, tools of every variety as well as patio furniture are typical of the items bargain shoppers will find. Vintage jewelry, collectable glassware, porcelain and crystal are some of the treasures to be discovered.
