UPDATE: This event has been cancelled. We'll focus on next year's auction.
Now that it’s finally warming up outside, the time for spring cleaning approaches. Soon, area residents will tackle annual challenges such as clearing brush in the backyard, tidying up the basement, cleaning out the garage, and emptying cabinets to replace shelf paper. As you identify the things you no longer need, keep in mind the adage “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure,” and consider donating that “treasure” to Presbyterian Village for its annual fundraiser.
“You may look at it and see junk, but your neighbors may look at it and see a collectible or a useful tool,” said Executive Director Ginger Nance.
Stop by during regular business hours, in the evening or on weekends to drop off your donation at 2401 S. Horton. For pick-up and delivery of heavy items, call 620-223-5550 to make arrangements.
“Used hobby items are always popular at the auction such as a golf cart, fishing tackle, that flat-bottom boat, tractors and farm items that have been sitting out back untouched for a few years, knick-knacks and even a vehicle you haven’t driven in awhile or some of those tools you don’t use or need anymore,” Nance said. “The possibilities are endless, and everything will go at the auction, including that vintage jewelry you haven’t worn in centuries, good lawn mowers and the old furniture pieces you plan to replace with your income tax return. Now’s the time to clean out the old and pass it on to someone who can use & cherish it! Remember, items don’t have to be old, new items are appreciated, as well.”
Presbyterian Village’s annual dinner and auction will take place May 6. Proceeds stay local and go to Presbyterian Village’s Good Samaritan fund, which helps seniors who have outlived their financial resources through no fault of their own, and to other programs that make a direct difference in senior’s lives.
It’s not too late if you’d like to be a sponsor for this year’s event. Please contact Ginger Nance at [email protected] or call 620-223-5550 for more information.
The items you donate may be deductible on your income taxes. Everyone wins at the auction! The Presbyterian Manor organization is a 501(c)3, not for profit, Christian mission organization dedicated to providing quality senior services guided by Christian values.
