Annual Yard Sale
Thanks to all who supported, shopped and volunteered at our Annual Yard Sale benefit in late April. With your help, we raised over $16,700! These funds will help us continue our efforts to provide shelter, food, veterinary care and adoption services to pets in need. We anticipate our 2018 yard sale to be the weekend of April 21 and 22, 2018. Just be sure to check back to this page or our facebook, during the winter months for confirmation!
We’re grateful to our host, the Nash Family and Stellos Family Investment Properties, who donated the warehouse space for our sale on very short notice. They really saved the day. We appreciate their generosity and commitment to help the Humane Society. We’re also grateful to A1 Disposal for allowing us to use a dumpster as well as to the amazing crew at Goodwill Industries in Hudson who took the majority of items left from our sale to re-sell or recycle through their store in Hudson, making our clean-up very efficient.
The consensus regarding our new ‘emergency venue’ location was that of great satisfaction. This venue served us very well. It was nice in many regards for Nashua to host the Yard Sale and appeal to inner city residences vs what many considered the Hudson venue to be a ‘destination’.
Of course our yard sale would not be possible without the support of our amazing volunteers. There were 84 volunteers who helped on donation days and 58 who were there to staff the event. Collectively they gave 1,122 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!
