MARYSVILLE Some local realtors will be accepting donations over the next two weeks for their annual rummage sale to benefit local foster children.
The Marysville John L. Scott office will be holding the garage sale at their State Avenue office on Oct. 6 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is soliciting donations from the community.
Last year the sale raised $10,000 to help the victims of a tragic car accident that killed a Lakewood teenager and seriously injured another. The John L. Scott corporate office supports Childrens Hospital in Seattle, but this year the Marysville office wanted to donate proceeds to the Compass Health foster child program. Organizer Lisa Lobaugh said locals can help in two ways.
First, people can drop off their gently used items from now until the sale. They would like some good stuff, and Lobaugh noted that Clock Tower Storage has donated the largest space on their State Avenue property to hold the booty before the sale. The realtors will need to store and sort the donations, but they wont be making price tags. Everything offered at the sale is by donation only: people pay what they think an item is worth, or they offer what they can to help, she said. Last year some shoppers were very generous, Lobaugh said.
I had a guy hand me a $100 bill for a bag of magnets, Lobaugh laughed.
Donations are accepted at the John L. Scott office at 1214 State Avenue in Marysville, or by calling Lobaugh at 425-330-2188 or Dave at 425-530-0017 for pick up and drop off information. Cash donations are welcome, televisions and computer monitors are not.
