The semi-annual Cash for Clothes Sale to benefit Coastal Opportunities will be held Saturday, May 17 through Monday, May 19, at the American Legion Hall on Pearl Street in Camden.

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.

Those who wish to sell clothing at the sale must pre-register. 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 spring and summer clothing will be accepted for this sale. Sellers will register their name and address, be given identification tags, lists for clothing, and instruction sheets. Do not bring clothing to sell to pre-registration unless it is a donation to the workshop.

Cash for Clothes has planned two weekends for pre-registration, which will be held at Coastal Opportunities on 35 Limerock St. in Camden.To sell clothing at the sale, pre-register Friday, May 2, from 4 to 6 p.m., or Saturday, May 3, from 9 to 11 a.m. Pre-registration will also be held Friday, May 9, from 4 to 6 p.m., and Saturday, May 10, from 9 to 11 a.m. Cash for Clothes has always been proud to offer good clothing at bargain prices, garments that are torn, stained, or out of season cannot be accepted.

Clothing items from any season will happily be accepted as donations for the sale, at Coastal Opportunities on 35 Limerock St. in Camden any time during the year. To donate the entire proceeds from the sale of the clothing to Coastal Opportunities, there is no need to pre-register. Simply take clothing to Coastal Opportunities any time before the sale. Volunteers will tag and price the clothing.
