Ella T. Grasso Technical High School, 189 Fort Hill Road, Groton, CT
For 61 years, Child & Family Agency of Southeastern CT has held a Tag Sale, and it is now the largest of its kind in New England. This year the Sale is at Ella T. Grasso Technical High School, 189 Fort Hill Road, Groton on April 16, 17 and 18 –Thursday 9am-5pm, Friday 9am-5pm and Saturday 9am-3pm.
Last year as many as 125 tables and 40 clothing racks were needed to display the Sale’s art, collectables, housewares, linens, small appliances, sporting goods, books, toys, jewelry and clothing. Its furniture department of tables, chairs, bed frames, dressers, shelves, lamps and rugs was extensive.
Activity begins a week before the Sale with five days of “Intakes” to which generous community members drop off gently used items at six locations along the CT coastline from Mystic down to Essex. The Child & Family Annual Sale motto “Bring the Best and Leave the Rest” has resulted in “quality” donations that help to provide for this successful fundraiser. Proceeds go directly to support the services provided by Child & Family Agency, a non-profit organization that has served Connecticut families for over 200 years.
Child & Family Agency of Southeastern CT serves children and their families in New Haven, Middlesex and New London counties with programs in children’s health care, children’s mental health, childcare, prevention of child abuse, treatment of family violence, teen pregnancy, and parent education.
