Danbury-based Regional Hospice and Home Care has come up with a unique way to raise money as non-profits continue to do more with less. Hospice President and CEO Cynthia Roy says they are hosting a Thrifts-2-Gifts sale this weekend. They are looking for items that people want to donate Thursday and Friday.
All of the proceeds from the sale on Saturday will benefit patients and families receiving end-of-life care at the Center for Comfort Care & Healing.
Acceptable items include working or gently used: area rugs, collectibles, strollers, children’s bicycles, designer clothing and shoes, framed art and photo frames, furniture, home and garden decor, housewares and mirrors, jewelry and fashion accessories, lamps, lawn equipment, linens for bed and kitchen, luggage, skis and boots, small appliances, sporting equipment and vintage items.
A complete list of acceptable/not acceptable items can be found online at their events page. If someone has a large item that would like to donate, contact Hospice via email, firstname.lastname@example.org and send a photograph. Roy says they can arrange pick up and delivery of the item.
Drop-off dates for donations are Thursday, September 10th and Friday, September 11th from 9 am to 2 pm and 5 to 6 pm at the Center for Comfort Care & Healing, 30 Milestone Road in Danbury.
The Thrifts-to-Gifts Fall Sale will take place at the Center on Milestone Road, on Saturday September 12th from 10am to 4pm.
