Annual Yard Sale

One of 2 huge rooms that housed thousands of treasurers for shoppers.

Thanks to all who supported our Annual Yard Sale benefit held Saturday, April 12 and Sunday, April 13 in Hudson by shopping or bringing donations in advance of the sale. With your help, we raised over $20,200! These funds will help us continue our efforts to provide shelter, food, veterinary care and adoption services to pets in need.

We’re grateful to our host, Chartwell Properties, who donated the warehouse space for our sale. We appreciate their generosity and commitment to help the Humane Society.

Of course our yard sale would not be possible without the support of our amazing volunteers. There were 79 volunteers who helped on donation days and 56 who were there to staff the event. Collectively they gave 1,275 hours of service doing everything from sorting, cashiering, and package hold, to security and traffic details. We simply could not have hosted this event without them!

We’re also thankful for the generous businesses, A1 Disposal Services and R White Equipment Center, who donated time and equipment for trash removal and to our Gold Sponsor, The Telegraph, for helping us with promotion of the benefit sale to their readership.

But it really was the support of our volunteers, countless donors, and over 1,200 shoppers who truly made our yard sale benefit a success and we’re grateful!

We anticipate our 2015 yard sale to be the weekend of April 19 and 20, 2015. Just be sure to watch our website, www.hsfn.org, during the winter months for confirmation!
