EMQ (previously known as Eastfield Ming Quong) is hosting a “Holiday Encore Sale” Oct. 10 and Oct. 11 2015 from 9 – 4 at the EMQ FamiliesFirst Community Room at its center in Campbell. This fundraiser is being run by the EMQ Auxilary and the Butter Paddle (the Los Gatos store run by volunteers, many of whom are Los Gatans, with profits supporting EMQ) in support of children and their families who are in crisis. Locals know, but newcomers may not, that EMQ has a site here in Los Gatos, too.)
Donations are being sought for like new and very gently used holiday items.
Address: EMQFF Community Room 251 Llewellyn Avenue, Campbell, CA 95008

EMQ represents the merger years ago of two organizations: Eastfield and Ming Quong.
