The Cash for Clothes Sale is the major community fundraising event to benefit Coastal Opportunities, an agency providing services to autistic or developmentally disabled adults in the Knox County area.

Pre-registration is required for anyone wishing to sell clothes during the sale scheduled for the end of October. Clothing will be sold on a 50/50 basis, with half of the profit going to the seller and half to Coastal Opportunities. When selecting clothing to sell, remember that only good quality fall and winter clothing will be accepted for this sale. Those registering with a name and address will be given identification tags, lists for clothing and instruction sheets.

Do not bring clothing to pre-registration unless it is being donated.

Pre-register Friday, Oct. 11, from 4 to 6 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 12, from 9 to 11 a.m.; Friday, Oct. 18, from 4 to 6 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 19, from 9 to 11 a.m. at Coastal Opportunities, 35 Limerock St., Camden. Cash for Clothes has always been proud to offer good clothing at bargain prices, so we cannot accept garments that are torn, stained or out of season.

Clothing donations are accepted any time during the year.

Cash for Clothes welcomes new volunteers to work on various aspects of the sale. Times are available both prior to and during the sale. This is a wonderful way to contribute to the community, help clients of Coastal Opportunities, and meet new people. Volunteers who work four or more hours qualify to attend the Cash for Clothes pre-sale. If you wish to volunteer or have questions about joining the volunteer staff, call Nancy Wolfertz at 594-5429.

This fall, two area businesses have come forward to co-sponsor the sale. Allen Insurance & Financial and The First will be underwriting a significant portion of the operating costs associated with staging the Cash for Clothes fall sale.

The semi-annual Cash for Clothes Sale to benefit Coastal Opportunities will take place Saturday, Oct. 26, through Monday, Oct. 28, at the American Legion Hall on Pearl Street in Camden.
