[ARCHIVED] 08-16-2022 Danville Police Department Hosts Community Yard Sale

On Saturday, September 10, 2022, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., the P.E.A.C.E. (Police Embrace Active Community Engagement) Community Center is hosting a community yard sale. The location is at the P.E.A.C.E. Community Center on 827 Green Street, Danville, VA, 24251. The P.E.A.C.E. Community Center is a project spearheaded by Ashytn Foddrell, Community Relations Liaison for the Danville Police Department (DPD).  Foddrell spoke with residents in this neighborhood and their recommendation was to turn this building back into a community center. The P.E.A.C.E. Community Center opened on December 1, 2021 with the goal of providing a safe place for youth ages 8-18 to meet and to build positive relationships between our youth and the local law enforcement community.

 This community yard sale is an avenue for the community to come together and interact with the DPD. Residents of Danville and non-residents of Danville are eligible to reserve a space to sell their items. The cost to rent a space is $25. Space is limited, so first come, first serve. We ask that you please bring your own table, tent, and chairs. This event is free for the public to attend. All proceeds will go to DPD Community Relations. If you would like to donate items to be sold, this option is available as well. For more information or to reserve a space, please contact Ashtyn Foddrell, 434-797-8898, ext. 5, or via email at
