Fort Scott, Kan. – Now that it’s warming up outside, it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning. As you identify the things you no longer need, consider donating those items to the annual Fort Scott Presbyterian Village fundraiser.
“You may look at it and see junk, but others may look at it and see a collectible or a useful tool or the start to a new hobby,” said Executive Director Ginger Nance.
Stop by 2401 S. Horton during regular business hours, in the evening or on weekends, to drop off your donation. For pick-up and delivery of heavy items, call 620-223-5550 to make arrangements.
“Used hobby items are always popular at the auction, such a golf cart you no longer use, fishing tackle, that flat-bottom boat that’s been sitting out back untouched for a few years, household items, knick knacks and even some of those old farm equipment pieces you don’t use anymore,” Nance said. “The possibilities are endless, and everything will go at the auction, including that vintage jewelry you haven’t worn in years and the old furniture pieces you plan to replace with your income tax return.” Do you have a vehicle you no longer drive that you are tired of paying insurance to keep? Consider donating it to the Presbyterian Village’s Good Samaritan auction.
Items do not have to be old. New items are appreciated, as well. A receipt for your donation can be given to you to utilize when thinking about your taxes for next year. It’s a win, win for everyone involved!
Presbyterian Village’s annual dinner and auction will take place in May. Proceeds stay local and go to the Village’s Good Samaritan Program, which helps to pay for a senior’s care who have outlived their financial resources through no fault of their own.
