Tamaqua donation drop-off/ giveaway Sat., raindate Sun.
Members of the Tamaqua Volunteers group are looking for donations of clothing, toys, tools, appliances, furniture and anything else that could help a needy family in Tamaqua.
Any type of useable, clean donations are greatly appreciated. Volunteers are asking people to drop off all donations this Saturday (Aug. 25) between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. at the storage facility next to Schickram's Car Wash, located on Rose Street in Tamaqua.
Tomorrow's drop-off/giveaway event will be weather dependent. If it is raining Saturday morning, the event will be held Sunday instead.
All items will then be given free to Tamaqua residents via a simple drawing. Any Tamaqua resident wanting to receive donations is encouraged to be there before 9 a.m. for the donation giveaway scheduled for 9:15 a.m.
Organizer Andrew Leibenguth, said, "If all goes well, we will hold this donation event for Tamaqua residents every fourth Saturday of the month." The raindate is Sunday.
