DAVENPORT — Bows are being tied, trees trimmed and decorations hung in preparation for the annual Christmas open house at Cinderella’s Cellar. The open house is Oct. 25 with extended hours of 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Janet McCabe of the Catholic Service Board, which operates Cinderella’s Cellar, said rooms of Christmas items will go on sale. Thanksgiving and fall items currently on sale will continue to be on sale at the resale shop, she noted.
Proceeds from sales at Cinderella’s Cellar go to the Kahl Home.
Cinderella’s Cellar carries clothing, furniture, decorations, kitchenware, books and more.
The Catholic Service Board, which was established in the 1950s, has approximately 120 members. Many of those members volunteer at Cinderella’s Cellar and/or at the Kahl Home, McCabe said.
