A Winnipeg family is going above and beyond in an effort to build a church in the Philippines.

This weekend, Mylene Deciar along with her family, will host a garage sale.

She says the church, St. Joseph Chapel located in Sapang Village, has been in the works for a few years now, but due to a lack of funding, construction has been halted.

Deciar says they hope to raise enough funds on Saturday to help get things back up and running again.

She says the church is very important to the community.

Deciar says there are many reasons to check out the sale.

She says the sale will feature everything from kids stuff to camping gear, to Christmas items and a pool table.

The garage sale will take place this Saturday from 9am- 5:30pm at 42 Burdick Place.
