HOPE is hosting a yard sale Thursday-Saturday, April 15-17, and is currently requesting donations for the sale.
Items of almost every type are welcome, however, clothing and mattresses are not being accepted.
Suggested categories of donations are household and kitchen items, home accessories, tools, baby items, toys, bicycles, books, musical instruments, electronics, small appliances, furniture and lawn furniture.
It would be appreciated if donated items are in gently used condition.
Donations can be dropped off at HOPE, 597 Ragsdale Street, Jacksonville, during the day Tuesday-Wednesday, April 13-14. Arrangements can be made to receive items at other times or even to have someone pick up donations from those unable to drop them off.
Donations are tax deductible as HOPE is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit.
