We need volunteers from the area to step forward as well– as carpenters and seamstresses– and folks with electrical and/or computer and/or jewelry repair skills too!
Of course, we’re also looking for help to publicize this event– so that as many folks as possible from the region bring in their old toys, lamps, vacuum cleaners, alarm clocks, radios, toys, espresso machines, computers, toaster ovens, other appliances– you name it– in May 3rd!
