After canceling its annual Rummage Sale due to COVID-19 concerns, the MCH Auxiliary is hosting smaller sales to reduce some of the merchandise filling its warehouse. The latest sales begin Sept. 12 at multiple locations in Blair.
"We will be following local health agency guidance by requiring masks (volunteers and shoppers), having hand sanitizer on hand as they enter, limiting the number of shoppers in each building and not allowing any children under the age of 12 to shop," said Leslie Watts, Auxiliary board president and volunteer.
The sales will take place at the Blair American Legion and at a building at Country Tire.
"Both locations are within walking distance of each other and the Auxiliary Closet, which is our thrift store, so it will be a convenient shopping experience on a smaller scale than what we typically have at the Rummage Sale," Watts said.
The weekend of Sept. 10-12 will feature women's clothing at Country Tire and household, linen and dishes at the American Legion. Sept 17-19 will be men's clothing, shoes electronics, tools at Country Tire and books, movies and games at the American Legion. The sales Oct 1-3 will feature holiday merchandise at the American Legion and toys at Country Tire. Women's shoes, purses, jewelry and accessories will be at the American Legion Oct. 8-10.
"Supporting the sales will help the Auxiliary reduce the inventory we have in storage and provide very affordable merchandise to members of our surrounding communities. The money raised through the sales efforts will help us continue to support our local hospital and clinics, which is the primary mission and purpose of the MCH Auxiliary."
