what can you donate?

We are collecting donations year-round for our Sale. But the best donation you could give is to come to the Sale and bid on a quilt, buy a dinner, and give of your time.

Donations are the back bone of all relief sales. We can always use another volunteer to help along with the Sale, as well. Please feel free to be creative and contact us about what you would like to donate. Thank you for your support.

Here is a partial list of items that have been donated in past years: new or vintage quilts, comforters, gently-used furniture, dishes and teas sets, tools in good working condition, loose change, new or gently-used books, potted plants, cars, boats, artwork, paintings, antiques, and more!
