HWGA and Local Charities
This season we are partnering with Parents as Teachers, Headstart, and Synergy house. These programs’ administrators have identified specific families who would benefit greatly from our donations, and a limited number of vouchers are provided to a Post-Sale event for these families. After the close of the sale, the families will be given the opportunity to visit the sale location and select from donated items. Your donations will be a true blessing to these families right here in our community. I hope to expand this program, but it truly depends on the generosity of the consignors. Please consider donating a few (or all!) of your unsold items to this great program.
Any items remaining after the event will be given to Hillcrest Transitional Housing. Hillcrest looks to long term solutions for local homeless and displaced persons. Some of your donated items will go directly into the hands of our area’s most needy children. The rest will support Hillcrest’s good work through sales at the Hillcrest Thrift store on Prairie View Rd. We hope you will choose to donate some (if not all) of your remaining items to this great charity! Also, if you have considered volunteering but don’t really need to shop the sale, you can “volunteer for a cause”. Donate the Grow Bucks you earned to the families in the Hillcrest program. Parents who were homeless not long ago will be able to shop in a store for new items for their children. Simply register to volunteer, then email email@example.com and say how much of your Grow Bucks you want to donate!
If you choose to donate your items, you can request a tax donation form from us after the sale.
