Learning Zone Garage Sale

Get involved with The Learning ZONE / Mar Vista MEGA Garage Sale

The Learning ZONE / Mar Vista MEGA Garage Sale will be held Saturday, May 6, from 8am-1pm in partnership with the Mar Vista Community Council and entire Mar Vista community.

Last year, we surpassed our extremely ambitious goal of raising $10,000 over the Garage Sale weekend through sales and donations. Our goal once again this year is to raise $10,000 to assist with ongoing Learning ZONE operations, which includes an upgrade to sophisticated web-based Math & English foundational curriculum, educational field trips and pursuing broader fundraising efforts to ultimately expand the Learning ZONE scope and student roster. 

There are four ways you can help:

  1. PRAY for the Learning ZONE and the event!
  2. HOST your own Garage Sale on Saturday, May 6 and dedicate all proceeds to the Learning ZONE.
  3. DONATE some quality unwanted items to the Learning ZONE sale. You can drop those off at "Garage Sale Headquarters" (North / Youth Lot) any time Friday, May 5, between 12pm-8pm.
  4. VOLUNTEER! We need volunteers on Friday, May 5, from 12pm-8pm to help receive, sort and prepare all of the donations for the sale. We also need a great number of volunteers on the day of the event, Saturday, May 6, from 6am-3pm, to assist with event set-up and tear-down, serve as security, cashiers, sales attendants, maintenance and other positions vital for a successful event.

If you are interested in serving in any way, please contact Learning ZONE Director Ron Petronicolos at 323.839.7738 or
