Haven Animal Rescue announced its resale shop will have a big fundraising yard sale October 18 and challenges Fairhope residents to make a donation of items for the yard sale.
Fairhope, AL – The public is invited to shop for a good cause at The Haven Resale Shop’s upcoming Fall yard sale on Saturday, October 18, from 8am to 1pm. Located next to the newly renovated Fairhoper’s Park in downtown Fairhope, the shop is now accepting donations for this upcoming yard sale through October 14. With the holidays fast approaching, this upscale shop will surely have something for those looking for a bargain.
With a financial goal of $3500, Manager Heather Delker is ramping up the excitement by making a challenge to everyone in the Fairhope community to make a donation for that yard sale. “I challenge everyone to make a small donation. Grab a shopping bag, look around one room in your house, and find five items that you no longer use,” said Delker. “Put those things in the bag, put the bag in your vehicle and, the next time you are downtown, drop the bag off at the Resale Shop, 357 Morphy Avenue.” She adds that if you drop it off during their hours of Tuesday thru Friday, 10am to 4pm, you will receive a receipt for your taxes. “Challenge your friends, your children, your parents, your neighbors to do the same,” she added.
Because The Haven Resale Shop is small, they don’t accept clothing, large items such as refrigerators, nor electronics, such as TVs, computers and printers. In addition, to help those who must sort thru all the items prior to the yard sale, donors are asked to bring items that are seasonally appropriate, clean and in working, sellable condition. Furniture will be accepted if you can bring it to the shop.
The public can also visit The Haven’s website at www.havenforanimals.org, as well as The Haven and The Haven Resale Shop’s Facebook pages for more ways to help and a more complete listing of what the shop sells and accepts. If you have any questions, call the shop at 251-929-1911. “We are grateful to the community for their generosity of donations and for the time the volunteers donate to keep the shop open,” says Mike Graham, the Haven’s Executive Director. “Funds generated from this event provide support for our life-saving adoption and foster programs.”
