We had a great day of pickups and deliveries on Satuday. Kudos to MVCS Dads Terrance Taylor — who worked 2 Saturdays in a row picking up donated items – and Kevin Curry for helping with this weekend’s load of treats.
This week we received from John Griffin a bunch of household items and some furniture; he has a week old son so it’s out with the old and in with the new. The Lubold family donated a play kitchen that is getting a lot of interest on Craigslist. Deborah Crabtree–a neighbor’s loss is our gain–donated a desk intended for the neighbor when they weren’t able to pick it up and our volunteers were!
But there’s more. Nicole Devore donated lots of cute furniture and household decorating items. The McDonald family donated a very nice antique sideboard (I think Brian’s wanted to get rid of it for years). Lori Kreger stopped by to drop-off donated goods and wound up purchasing a framed print while she was at our storage unit! Now that’s what I call the ideal MV Big Flea participant – giving and buying at the same time!
Remember, we’ll be holding drop offs and pickup every Saturday until April 18. You can also plan to drop off your items at the MV Rec Center on Friday, April 24 (Big Flea Eve). For more information about pickups, purchases and drop offs, please contact Cynthia Webster (CynWebster@earthlink.net) or 703.549.3501.
Many thanks for your support!
