(CENTREVILLE) – Donations are currently being accepted for the St. Joseph County United Way's Silent Auction.
The event will be held from September 14 through September 20 during the St. Joseph County Grange Fair. United Way Executive Director Kelly Hostetler says the move from the tent which they have used for many years to a nearby barn was a huge success. Hostetler says the barn provides more space as well as a cleaner and dryer environment.
Many great items have been donated so far, but Hostetler says there is still a lot of the barn to fill. Some examples of popular auction times include bicycles, camping equipment, tools, antiques, gift certificates, electronics, artwork and many more. The United Way would be glad to pick up any items you wish to share.
Any items or services, large or small, will be accepted and are appreciated. The donor's name will be displayed on each item. Cash donations are also accepted and will be used to purchase items in the name of the donor.
If you would like to donate an item, please call the United Way office at 269-467-9099.
