Donations for Garage Sale Needed


It will soon be time for our annual Friends of the Hays Dog Park Garage Sale. This year we are trying to raise funds to get 3 shelters at the dog park for some needed shade. The shelters and concrete are approximately $7500.00. If you have excess furniture or household goods the FHDP would gladly accept their donations. We will accept all items that are in saleable condition, except for clothing and shoes. The sale date is August 15–16 at the old Fashion Bug on the South side of The Mall. Donated items may be brought to the Fashion Bug on August 13th and 14th from 6pm to 9pm. If you need to get your donations out of the house before that date, please call Laurie Mortinger at 785-635-5616 to make different arrangements.

If you know of any individual, or a business, who would be interested in donating the funds to purchase a shelter, we will have a plaque made and displayed at the shelter as the donor.

Thank you for your help.
