BERLIN — Androscoggin Valley Home Care Services will host the 17th annual indoor-outdoor yard and bake sale to benefit "Dorothy's Gift" on Saturday, June 3, from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at 795 Main St. in Berlin.
"We have already started receiving donations, and welcome items in good condition that anyone wishes to contribute," said Director Pauline Tibbetts. Luggage, skis, chemicals or paint products and clothes cannot be accepted due to space limitations and insurance consideration.
Proceeds from the sale support the in-home needs of those people who do not qualify for state programs.
According to a release submitted by Androscoggin Valley Home Care, "Dorothy's Gift" has enabled hundreds of people to live independently in the community because Dorothy herself appreciated her ability to do so with the same kind of assistance. Anyone who cannot come on the day of the sale and wants to contribute to this cause may go to www.dorothysgift.org to give an online donation.
Androscoggin Valley Home Care Services has been serving Berlin and its surrounding communities since 1975, providing homemaking like cleaning, cooking, errands and laundry and personal care services such as bathing to those people who need assistance to remain independent in their homes.
A private, non-profit agency licensed through the State of New Hampshire, Androscoggin Valley Home Care Services employs 45 professionally trained workers and is located at 795 Main St., Berlin. Call (603) 752-7505 weekdays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., or visit www.avhomecare.org for more in-home support information.
