Volunteers, donations needed in Tamaqua
Have stuff you want to get rid of or don't have room for? If so, members of the Tamaqua Volunteers community initiative group are 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.
They will accept practically anything clean and odor-free, no matter how small or large; such as clothes, toys, furniture, crafts, decorations, working appliances, tools, electronics and so on. Organizers add that anybody from anywhere can donate.
Donations can be dropped off this Saturday between 8-9 a.m. at the M and M 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 simple and fair drawing. The coordinator states that anyone with a 18252 Zip code, no matter their income, can take advantage of this giveaway.
In case of heavy rain, the event will be moved to Sunday, June 30 (same times).
For more information, visit the event on Facebook or call (570) 668-1234. The free event will be held every fourth Saturday of the month.
