The yard sales we have been hosting at Niles Animal Hospital have been wonderful successes as we have supported a number of worthwhile charitable causes involved with animals by helping to raise much needed funds. These events are a win-win for everyone because those who donate items to the sale are clearing the clutter in their homes plus gaining a tax deduction for supporting a not-for-profit organization. In addition, donors feel good about helping a charitable group in need. Those who come to the sale are able to find various “treasures” at bargain prices and also with the added benefit of knowing that the money they spend directly supports these organizations. Of course, those who volunteer to help set up, run and clean up after the sale know that their time contribution is invaluable in helping to make these events a success.
Our last sale of this year is to benefit Chicago Pet Rescue, a charitable not-for-profit organization, which rescues pets, fosters them and finds loving homes.Needless to say, it can be quite costly to provide for their maintenance care plus any medical costs that may arise. The funds generated from this yard sale will go a long way in helping to cover these costs.
The yard sale will be held Sunday, September 23rd from 9 AM until 3 PM in the Niles Animal Hospital parking lot at 7278 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Niles (just north of Touhy Ave.). Parking is available in the surrounding lots (Solar Heating just north, Marathon Gas Station across the street, Brunswick Zone across the street and on nearby side streets). There will be all sorts of pet related items, but there will be a wide range of anything imaginable and unimaginable! Check out previous yard sales on the Niles Animal Hospital Facebook page “Niles Animal Hospital and Bird Medical Center.” We have photos posted on the page from another Chicago Pet Rescue yard sale last summer, A Refuge for Saving the Wildlife bird rescue last fall, and Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation held this spring. As can be seen, a good time was had by all at the events with a wide variety of items available for purchase.
If you would like to donate items for the sale we will be collecting donations for the sale at Niles Animal Hospital during regular business hours up until the time of the yard sale. Donated items are tax deductible.Feel free to clear out your house and garage of clutter and bring it on by. Any questions call the hospital at 847-647-9325.
Most importantly, stop on by at the sale and make some purchases to support a worthwhile cause which provides needed care for animals. We hope to see you there!
