St. Matthias Church, 371 Chesterfield Road, East Lyme, CT
9 a.m.-3 p.m., Child & Family Agency is gearing up for its 63rd Annual Sale, which has earned a reputation for being one of the “Largest Tag Sales in New England.” It all starts with the “Intake,” where people drop off donations of gently used furniture, art, collectables, linens, housewares, small appliances, sporting goods, toys, games, books, CDs, DVDs, tools, clothing and jewelry at an area “Intake” location.
Auxiliary members of C&FA will be standing by to greet and assist with your donated items at six “Intake” locations. Items will then be sorted, boxed and transported to New London for a bonanza, 3-day fundraiser. This year’s 63rd Annual Sale will be held Thursday May 11th from 9-5, Friday May 12th from 9-5 and Saturday May 13th from 9-3 at the New London Armory at 249 Bayonet Street in New London. All proceeds from the tag sale support Child & Family Agency programs and services.
Donations are tax deductible, for which receipts will be issued at the “Intakes.” So, as you clean and clear out your house this spring, consider donating items to the Child & Family Agency’s Annual Sale. “Bring your best, and leave the rest.” Help make this year’s fundraiser a success and, in turn, support necessary programs and services for our children in need. Last year over 18,000 children and their family members in 79 towns were helped by the agency’s staff of over 190 dedicated professionals.
