Do you have a lot of household items you don't need or want to get rid of? The Tamaqua Volunteers community initiative group is looking for donations of clothing, toys, tools, electronics, holiday decorations, pots/pans/dishes, cookware, furniture, appliances and anything else you don't want to throw away or wouldn't mind parting with.
The group will accept practically anything clean and odor-free, no matter how small or large. The only items not accepted are old computer monitors and "smelly" items. Anybody can donate.
Donations can be dropped off between 8-9 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 26 at the M and M Self Storage facility located next to Schickram's Car Wash, Rose Street, in Tamaqua. Volunteers are not able to pick up or store donations.
Any Tamaqua resident wanting to receive donations is encouraged to be there by 9 a.m. for the donation giveaway scheduled to start at 9:15 a.m. sharp.
All items will then be given away free to residents via a drawing.
Anyone with an 18252 Zip code, no matter their income, can take advantage of this giveaway. Anyone, no matter where you live, can drop-off items.
In case of heavy rain, the event will be moved to Sunday, Oct. 27 (same times).
For more information, visit the event on Facebook or call 570-668-1234.
The free event is held the last Saturday of the month during the warmer months. This will be the last event for this year.
Organizers added that recent fire victims of the Brockton, Coaldale and Tamaqua fires will have priority over items.
