Jimmy Kimmel is cleaning out the closets at “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to raise money for the homeless youth organization My Friend’s Place.
The ABC late-night show will host a yard-sale event on Oct. 1 at the Hawthorn Avenue parking lot facility for Hollywood’s El Capitan Theater, where Kimmel tapes. Proceeds from the event will benefit for Kimmel’s Uncle Frank’s Helping Hand Foundation, which will earmark the funds for My Friend’s Place. The latter org helps about 1,500 homeless youth in Hollywood every year with a range of support services.
The sale items will include various set props, wardrobe and memorabilia used on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ over the show’s 14-year run to date. The sale will be held from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Kimmel fans can also bid on various items via Ebay.
Kimmel’s yard sale event is the final event in ABC’s larger “Summer of Service” campaign that has provided $500 grants to “changemakers” focused on community service and environmental projects.
