CAMDEN, Maine — The semi-annual Cash for Clothes Sale to benefit Coastal Opportunities will be held Saturday, May 21, through Monday, May 23, at the American Legion Hall on Pearl Street.
Cash for Clothes is the major community fundraising event for Coastal Opportunities, an agency providing services to adults with mental retardation and autism in the Knox County area.
If you wish to sell your clothing, you must pre-register. Clothing will be sold on a 50/50 basis (half the profit to the seller, half to Coastal Opportunities). When selecting clothing to sell, remember that only good quality spring and summer clothing will be accepted. You will register your name and address, be given identification tags, lists for clothing and instruction sheets. If you can’t come yourself, a friend can do it for you. Do not bring your clothing to sell at pre-registration unless you wish to donate clothes to the workshop.
Pre-registration will be held at Coastal Opportunities, 35 Limerock St., Camden. Cash for Clothes has planned two weekends for pre-registration. If you want to sell clothing at the sale, you may pre-register 4-6 p.m. Friday, May 6, or 9-11 a.m. Saturday, May 7. Pre-registration also will be held 4-6 p.m. Friday, May 13, or 9-11 a.m. Saturday, May 14.
Clothing items from any season will be accepted as donations for the sale any time during the year. If you wish to donate the entire proceeds from the sale of your clothing to Coastal Opportunities, you do not need to pre-register. Simply take your clothing to Coastal Opportunities on Limerock Street in Camden any time before the sale. Volunteers will tag and price the clothing for you.
If you wish to volunteer or have questions about joining the volunteer staff, call Nancy Wolfertz at 594-5429. Volunteers who work four or more hours qualify to attend the Cash for Clothes Pre-sale.
