We’re staging a yard sale in partnership with Military Connections, a non-profit organization that provides care packages, supplies and equipment to servicemen and women who are stationed abroad. All proceeds will benefit our troops.
The sale will be held at Anderson Interiors offices at 12 Plum Street, Verona on Saturday, September 10, 2011 from 8 a.m to 2 p.m.
You can help, too! If you’d like to donate to the sale, we are accepting gently used items Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Under the direction of Summer Tissue, Military Connections supports all branches of the U.S. Military. Servicemen and women are provided with food and healthcare items such as soups and powdered drink mixes, fruit snacks, pretzels, cookies, chewing gum, shampoo, razors, body wash, hand sanitizer, and insect spray. They also receive basic supplies, including flashlights, pillows, duct tape, and white socks.
Military Connections never loses sight of the sacrifices our troops make for their country and strives to make life abroad more comfortable. AT&T phone cards, DVDs and CDs, business envelopes, pocket-sized notebooks, magazines and puzzle books are also dispatched in an attempt to brighten their days. A complete list of items that the organization provides can be found on their web site.
If you’d like to participate in the organization’s efforts or have questions about the yard sale, please contact Summer.
