De-clutter living quarters, and at the same time, support Summit County seniors by donating usable excess to the Summit Seniors 24th Annual Giant Rummage Sale and Silent Auction.

The sale, Aug. 11-14 at the Summit County Community and Senior Center in Frisco, includes bargains on household goods, books, clothing, sporting goods and small furniture. Children’s clothing, toys, accessories, Christmas goods and electronics will also be featured.

Rummage volunteer Judy Carter said a lot of work goes into the annual sales: Senior volunteers donated about 3,000 hours last year. In past few years, the event has taken in about $40,000 after expenses. Organizers are hoping to raise about the same this year.

“I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t fun,” Carter said. “It’s fun meeting not only the volunteers, but the people who come in.”

There will also be a silent auction, which Carter said usually raises quite a bit of money. Items available include wine presentations, a variety of theme baskets, restaurant certificates, original artwork and many other items and services.

Donations of rummage in good, clean condition will be accepted noon to 5 p.m. Aug. 9, and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug.10. No large furniture, large appliances, TVs, computer monitors without the computer, mattresses, encyclopedias or magazines will be accepted.

There is a special pre-sale 5-8 p.m. Aug. 11, to open the event; a donation of $10 per person will be charged during these hours.

Regular rummage sale hours will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 12-13, and 10 a.m. to noon Aug. 14. On Sunday, items (other than boutique) inside the building will be sold for $1 per bagful. Boutique and everything located outside the building will be greatly reduced.

Cash or check only will be accepted in payment for both rummage sale and silent auction.

All proceeds benefit Summit County charitable organizations that support seniors. To apply for these funds or for more sale information, please contact the center at (970) 668-2940.
