Hopewell-Keroka Alliance’s 10th-Annual Indoor Flea Market

The Hopewell-Keroka Alliance (HKA) will hold its 10th-annual large flea market inside the newly expanded cafeteria of Hopewell Valley Central High School (HVCHS) in Pennington, NJ, on Sunday, March 24, from noon through 3 p.m.  Now is your chance to get a head start on some spring cleaning and grab great deals on a wide variety of items, all for a great cause.

As in past years, HKA volunteers gladly will accept deliveries of donated new or gently used household items, books, toys or clothing in good condition at the high school on Saturday, March 23, from noon through 3pm. Please no holiday decorations, electronics or their accessories, televisions, large furniture, baby equipment or sports equipment.

All net proceeds from this 10th flea market will benefit ongoing HKA health, education and infrastructure-improvement projects for residents of the Keroka area of southwestern Kenya in East Africa.

Founded in 2008 and jointly based in both Hopewell Valley, NJ, and Keroka, Kenya, the Hopewell-Keroka Alliance has raised $220,000 total in net proceeds, to date.  HKA is a Hopewell Township-based, all-volunteer, non-profit charitable organization, whose goals are to build an ongoing humanitarian and cultural bridge between the Hopewell Valley and Keroka communities and to improve health, education and infrastructure for residents of multiple small contiguous Kenyan villages over time.  HKA New Jersey selects and manages its projects in collaboration with HKA Keroka, a sister non-profit organization comprised of community leaders and volunteers on the ground in Keroka, Kenya.  Through HKA New Jersey-provided funding, HKA Keroka has completed over the past decade numerous community-development projects – for example, most recently, a borehole- and solar/electricity-based clean-water system in Nyanchonori Village.

HKA gratefully acknowledges and appreciates the generosity of all donors of goods, shoppers and weekend volunteers who will help make this year’s flea market a success.

Hopewell Valley Central High School is located at 259 Pennington-Titusville Road in Pennington.  Ample free parking is available.  HKA volunteers will be available to help unload donations from vehicles March 23 and will help shoppers transport prized purchases to their vehicles March 24.
