LUDLOW, Vt. – Black River Good Neighbor Services will hold its annual fall rummage sale at Fletcher Farm, 611 Route 103 south in Ludlow Friday and Saturday, Sept. 20 and 21, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 22, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The sale includes clothing of all sorts, shoes, sporting goods, housewares, linens, furniture, books, a Christmas shop, a boutique, a bake sale, and more.
Proceeds from this sale benefit BRGNS’ food and financial assistance programs. “We put our earnings right back into the community,” said Audrey Bridge, executive director of BRGNS.
According to the Vermont Foodbank, there is no end of reasons why our neighbors might lack money for food. So often we play by the rules our whole lives, meeting expectations and trying hard and then suddenly injury, illness, job loss, divorce, or some other event knocks our feet out from under us. Other times we grow up in turmoil and trauma, forced into survival mode as we try our hardest to see a future beyond tomorrow. Whatever the circumstance, when help is there, it can make a world of difference. “The greater Ludlow area demonstrates these realities particularly well,” said Bridge. “BRGNS provides that support in an uncertain world.”
The monies raised will help cover the cost of utilities, heating fuel, food, and rent for qualified individuals and families in Ludlow, Mount Holly, Belmont, Cavendish, Proctorsville, and Plymouth.
Please mark your calendar and come explore the many unique bargains. Since it is the fall, they can use donations of any excess produce from your garden, and of course donations of any baked goods that you would care to share at the bake sale table.
