Family sets up garage sale to help Moore

A couple of weeks ago, the Journal ran an article about Danielle Fuchs, 12, who was so touched by the tragedy in Moore, Okla., that she insisted on seeing it herself and then made a resolution to raise money to help those affected. She set a goal of $2,000 and set out going door to door in Belton neighborhoods asking for donations. But she didn’t stop there. She has also hosted raffles for donated items from businesses around town that found her heart and her goal worthwhile. She sold tickets for drawings including Scentsy items, dinner for 20 and about 30 other prizes. She set up a table at Market Days with her mother, Shauna, who makes and sells her own line of jewelry.



She put an end date on her efforts of Aug. 9, the date that she would have to start prepping for the new school year. With more than $1,000 raised so far, she put together one last effort in hopes of meeting her original goal.


This weekend, the Fuchs family will host a garage sale where all of the proceeds will go to Danielle’s cause. They’ve been notified of a family in need in Moore and will deliver the total funds to them in person on Sunday.


They’ll have typical garage sale items out this weekend including household items, clothing from the Fuchs family, shoes, toys, video games, movies, plus a represenative from Scentsy, Velata (fondue), and Grace Adele (designer handbags) and her mother’s own Jazzi Jewelz. All profits from the Fuch’s family and Jazzi Jewelz will go to the cause. And to top it off, they’ll have water, juice and cookies for sale and a donation bucket in case you don’t find anything you want to take home except a little good karma.


The garage sale will take place at 209 St. Andrews Place in Belton on Thursday (today) and Friday from 8-2; and Saturday from 8-1.
