Local Teen To Hold Fund Raising Garage Sale To Help Orphans In Belize
18-year-old Brandon Maddux of Newhall is hoping to do some remarkable things in the country of Belize, but he needs our help. On August 14, Maddux will be holding a garage sale to raise funds so he and 12 others can travel to the country of Belize and interact and keep company the orphaned children at the Kings Children Home, a non-profit organization based in Belize that is dedicated to helping provide residential care to children in need.
Since sixth grade, Maddux has been involved with the children’s ministry at The Sanctuary Church here in Santa Clarita. He has always been incredibly interested in helping children in any way he can. “I love serving the children.” said Maddox, “And I hope one day to become a children’s pastor.”
Through a couple at his church, he learned he could make a difference in the small Central American country and help provide children the comfort and guidance they need. He has made it his goal to raise the funds necessary to be proactive and help make a difference in the children’s life. Since he began the idea to hold a garage sale, many have come forward and donated items that could be sold for money.

Along with working and playing with the orphans of Belize, Maddux and his peers will also be working with Arms of Love Church on an undisclosed building project.
In order to be able to travel and stay in Belize for ten days, Maddux needs to raise at least $1,800 but is hoping to raise more to donate to the King’s Children Home. If enough money is raised, Maddux will begin his journey on October 24.
To support Maddux’s mission, the public is invited to attend his garage sale which will be held at his house at 19121 Dalton Street, Newhall, from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
