Donations Sought for Child & Family Annual Sale at Essex Intake Day, April 28

intake dayESSEX – The 62nd Annual Sale of the Child and Family Agency of Southeastern CT will be held in early May in New London, which means it’s time for you to spring clean and donate furniture, tools, toys, decorative items, vintage items and antique items, household items, books, sporting goods, art work and of course “jewelry.”

This sale helps raise the much needed, unrestricted funds for Child and Family Agency, a 200-year-old non-profit organization that serves over 18,000 children and their families from 79 towns.

The Essex River Valley Auxiliary of the Child and Family Agency will be hosting Intake for the sale at the Essex Town Hall at 29 West Ave. on Thursday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. “Please Bring the Best and Leave the Rest,” the Auxiliary members say. They will help you unload your car, and if you call them at (860) 526-3124 in advance, they will arrange for a pickup of bulkier items. You’re even invited to stay and help and make friends while sorting clothing, books, household goods and shoes.

Donation letters will be available for you at the site.

All donations will be boxed and transported to the New London Armory at 249 Bayonet Street, New London, where they will be combined with the donations from five other Auxiliaries for the Annual Sale to be held on May 5, 6 and 7.

Please call Pat Thompson at (860) 227-7551 with any questions or to learn how you can volunteer.
