Now that the warmer season has arrived, so have the rummage sales. The Robin Hood Foundation of Danville is ready and eager to pick up what is left over after your event. Your leftovers benefit so many families in Danville.
For those who don’t want to bother with having a sale, your donation will be much appreciated. Your items also are tax deductible since we are a state certified non-profit group. We accept clothing, household items and furniture. Everything must be clean and in good shape.
Why this organization over the others? We come to your home to pick up your items.
The items that are distributed to these low-income families are free. With today’s economy, it’s difficult to make ends meet as it is. Receiving these items takes a tremendous burden off of these families.
These families are appreciative of what is given to them. If it wasn’t for our distribution, many children would not have decent clothes for school.
Personally, I have been doing this for more than 27 years.
I have seen first-hand families in poverty. We have helped numerous fire and flood victims. Because of your years of generosity, so many families would do without of our everyday items we take for granted.
The Robin Hood Foundation of Danville never questions the need. In the Bible, it instructs us to help the poor. There will always be poor amongst us. Give to them liberally.
We pick up in the cities of Danville, Westville, Georgetown, Catlin, Oakwood, Bismarck and Covington, Ind. Just give us a call.
Thank you, and may God bless you.
