Spring means it’s time for a garage sale

Ray Copson

The Keuka Comfort Care Home is having its  annual garage sale, Friday June 3, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday, June 4 from  9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Yates County Fairgrounds located on Old Rte 14A, Penn Yan.

Volunteers will be at the fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 30 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. May  31 to accept donations.

“When you are cleaning out your house this spring, please consider saving your best items for our garage sale. If you could hold onto those items and bring them to the fairgrounds on that Monday or Tuesday prior to the sale, we would appreciate it,” says Maureen Wise, spokesperson for KCCH.

Volunteers will accept “like new” household items, such as glassware, kitchenware, quilts and blankets, baby things, paintings and pictures, furniture, decorations, jewelry, linens, to name a few.

Electronics, such as TV’s, radios, computers, printers, blow dryers, will not be accepted. We will not accept any gym equipment or Christmas Trees.  We have found in the past, they do not sell.

If you have a questionable item, please call the Keuka Comfort Care Home at 315-536-1690.

Volunteers who would like to help with setting up and accepting donations that week should also call the home.

Volunteers will be sorting and tagging on  Wednesday June 1 and Thursday, June 2.

“We are especially in need of people with good backs and a good truck to help us with the bigger donations,” adds Wise.

The Keuka Comfort Care Home is a two bedroom home for the terminally ill who have been medically determined to be in the last three months of their lives and who have decided to forgo further treatment other than palliative care.   The resident, their family or their insurance company are not charged for the care.

The home is funded entirely by donations, grants, and fundraisers.  For more information on the Keuka Comfort Care Home, please visit www.keukacomfortcarehome.org or give us a call at 315-536-1690.
