Saturday drop off day and great Tag Sale

Our usual 3rd Sunday (April 16 – Easter) drop-off day has been rescheduled to Saturday April 15.  We are also having a  Spring Tag Sale. Come on down and drop off your donations and maybe even find something to take home with you from Tag Sale.  Sometimes we end up with items our clients don’t need like a nice Weber grill or fine china.  There are several chairs, mirrors, pictures, blankets, desks, shelves, even a grandfather clock. Make us an offer and support A Hand Up along the way. Many items are FREE.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED – Please email us at with the date and time you can attend along with your contact number
