Donate Starting This Sunday
Donating to a worthy cause is a great way to recycle the many items that clutter our homes long after we’ve stopped using them. Donated items will be sold to the public at very affordable prices during the two-day sale. All unsold items will go to a variety of charitable organizations — so they won’t end up in landfill. Donations are tax-deductible. Volunteers at the mill will give you a form.
You can donate any of the following gently used items:
- Books (except textbooks, travel guides, catalogs and magazines)
- Music (except videotapes)
- Electronics (except televisions and computers)
- Household items (except mattresses and stuffed furniture)
Drop off times: Sunday, March 9 through Thursday, March 13, 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
