Clackamas County Bank to revive garage sale to benefit hospice
While the COVID-19 pandemic canceled many 2020 events, fundraisers among them, Clackamas County Bank plans to pick up where they left off and host the traditional Mt. Hood Hospice Garage Sale this spring.
"Since 1911, building a personal relationship with businesses and individuals has been a key element for the bank's 110 years of success," said bank representatives in a statement. "Continuously finding ways to support the community has been the foundation of the bank's culture."
Because of a personal connection with the local hospice provider, the bank has hosted fundraising events for Mt. Hood Hospice since the 1980s, including the garage sale and the summer fun event, Party on the Patio.
The bank is accepting donations of items to be sold at the garage sale until May 21. These donations can be dropped off at any Clackamas County Bank location and may include gently used items, such as tools, collectibles and more. Large furniture and appliances are not being accepted.
In 2019, the garage sale raised more than $3,000 for Mt. Hood Hospice and its mission to provide quality care to terminally ill patients, their loved ones, and their pets regardless of their ability to pay. The necessary cancelation of the sale last year was a loss for the nonprofit organization.
This year's event will be the 15th annual and takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 5, in the parking lot of the Sandy location, 38975 Proctor Blvd, Sandy.
The locations of Clackamas County Bank branches accepting donations are:
• Sandy Location: 38975 Proctor Blvd., Sandy, OR 97055
• Hoodland Location: 67403 E. Highway 26, Welches, OR 97067
• Boring Location: 28500 S.E. Highway 212, Boring, OR 97009
