Items and shoppers are being sought for this year’s Mercy Hospital Auxiliary Garage Sale. The garage sale is a chance for people to clean out their closets, basements and garages or purchase great items at bargain prices, and all for a great cause.
The community may drop off gently used items at the American Legion Memorial Home, 1007 W. Third St. in Washington, after 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, to be sold at the garage sale. Arrangements may be made to deliver items prior to the event by calling 239-8044.
“More than ever it seems like we need to be aware of what we have stored in our closets, in case it might be something someone else might find useful,” said Auxiliary member Linda Harper, co-chairperson for the garage sale. “We really hope everyone will take a good look around their homes for those items and think about donating it to the garage sale so that someone who needs it can buy it at a used or gently used price. People who donate or purchase items can feel good knowing they did something to help patients of Mercy.”
The garage sale will be held from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, April19,and from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, April 20, at the American Legion. Admission to the garage sale is free and proceeds will benefit the Auxiliary. The Auxiliary is proud to support the hospital in its mission to provide quality health care services to the communities it serves. Proceeds from this and other Auxiliary events are given to the hospital to purchase equipment and provide services that benefit patient care. For more information, call 636-239-8044.
