looking for local stuff to help woman with cancer:


I received this email from my cousin yesterday, I would ask anyone local to see what they can donate. You can drop anything by the shop, or someone would be happy to pick up your stuff!

you can email me at: daveclancyfamily(at)yahoo{dot}com

Hi everyone!

As the holidays approach - I have to think that I am not alone in needing to get rid of "stuff" around the house to make some room and de-clutter. I would like to make a personal plea that if you have anything you would like to get rid of, I have a cause that is more than worth while to donate to.

I work with a friend who is, and has been for some time, struggling with liver cancer. She is a single mother of two and someone that any of us could easily relate to. She is nearing the point of being able to receive a donated liver and her brother has stepped up to help in an incredible way, but will be struggling to pay for travel expenses and time off of work for his surgery and tests. There are several fund-raisers in the works.

If you have anything to donate to the yard sales, being held the first two weekends in October, to raise money for this family, please let me know and I would love to come pick up whatever you have.

Also, if you have any goods or services to donate to a planned silent auction being held in November, please let me know.

I know that I can help this family and appreciate you considering doing the same.

Hmmm. I have some cute tops that I was going to donate elsewhere. I can mail them if they want them.
