Volunteers with the Trinity United Church of Christ in Tamaqua have donated many items to the next Tamaqua Community Drop-Off and Giveway event.

All donations can be dropped off between 8 and 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 29, at the storage lockers located next to Schickram's Car Wash, Rose Street.

The free giveaway, which is open to all income levels, starts sharply at 9:15 a.m. In case of rain the event will be held on Sunday, at the same times.

Residents are asked to drop off all types of donations; including small or large appliances, furniture, beds, toys, tools, clean clothing, clean bedding, household items and so on. The only items not accepted are floor model televisions, non-working appliances and old computer monitors.

All donations will be given away free to Tamaqua residents via a simple lottery drawing system. Currently, the donations are only available for Tamaqua residents.

Organizers state that anyone receiving these donations must have identification to prove their residency.

Due to limited manpower and limited storage space, donations are not able to be transported by volunteers.

Any items left over after the giveaway event are free for anybody, not just Tamaqua residents, to take. Thorn's Cycles and ATV's and the Moyer Family of Tamaqua are donating the land and storage facility for the event.
