Operation Hope hosts annual tag sale; donations, volunteers sought

Don’t miss the chance to lighten your load by donating items you no longer need to Operation Hope. This year’s annual tag sale will be held Saturday, July 25, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, July 26, from noon to 4, at First Church Congregational Church, 148 Beach Road, Fairfield. Once again, First Church Congregational Church has generously allowed Operation Hope to use their facility for this long-standing community event that is open to all.

This tag sale provides a great opportunity for folks to donate items they no longer have use for — all for a worthy cause. Donations will be accepted from Monday, July 20 through Thursday, July 23. Operation Hope welcomes donations of furniture, household goods, jewelry, table and kitchen linens, pictures/paintings, toys, gaming systems, newer electronics, bikes, outdoor and sporting goods.

Visit operationhopect.org/events/annual-tag-sale for specific information about drop-off times.

“Our annual tag sale is a fun way for local residents to help Operation Hope and for Operation Hope to offer the community a fun weekend event. The donated items don’t end up in the landfill, but instead have a chance to find a new home. And the buyers not only get a bargain, but also help fund services that support our struggling neighbors,” said Carla Miklos, Operation Hope’s executive director.

The event is always in need of volunteers. If interested, many opportunities are available to help — for more information, contact Donna Schmidt at 203-292-5588, ext. 207 or [email protected]

The event will occur rain or shine. There is an admission fee of $1, which goes to support Operation Hope’s shelter, housing and hunger programs. Plenty of interesting and varied items will be for sale, as well as a concession stand hosted by the Fairfield Rotary. There will also be fresh produce, baked goods and more available. The ever-popular chance to win a “Basket of Hope” returns again this year.

Operation Hope cannot accept bedding, televisions, computers, monitors, clothing, cribs, shoes or books. Furniture may be donated at 148 Beach Road during scheduled donation times, but cannot be picked up by Operation Hope.

Operation Hope provides the opportunity for individuals and families to experience transformative change. By addressing basic needs for food and shelter, as well as offering long-term solutions to hunger and homelessness, including affordable housing, life skills training and personalized clinical support, we help people reach their potential in an environment where compassion inspires dignity and hope.
