CAMDEN, Maine — The semiannual Cash for Clothes Sale to benefit Coastal Opportunities will be held Saturday-Monday, Oct. 20-22, at the American Legion Hall on Pearl Street. Coastal Opportunities provides services to autistic or developmentally disabled adults in the Knox County area.

Those who wish to sell clothing at the sale must register in advance. Clothing will be sold on a 50-50 basis, with half of the profits going to the seller and half to Coastal Opportunities.

Only good-quality fall and winter clothing will be accepted for the sale. Register your name and address for identification tags, lists for clothing and an instruction sheet. Do not bring clothing at the time of registration except for donation.

Cash for Clothes registration will be held 4-6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5 and Oct. 12, and 9-11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6 and Oct. 13, at Coastal Opportunities, 35 Limerock St.

Clothing items from any season will be accepted as donations for the sale at Coastal Opportunities any time during the year.

If you wish to donate all proceeds from the sale of your clothing to Coastal Opportunities, you do not need to register. Simply take your clothing to Coastal Opportunities any time before the sale. Volunteers will tag and price the clothing for you.
