Yard Sale for Charity This Sunday (May 20th) - Reminder

On Sunday, May 20th, we will be hosting a yard sale to benefit Flint Creek Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation. It will take place from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM in the Niles Animal Hospital parking lot at 7278 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Niles. There will be plentiful parking at surrounding parking lots in the area.
Flint Creek is a not for profit organization which is actively involved with rescuing and rehabilitating wildlife, as well as education the public about our native wildlife. Needless to say, they depend upon charitable donations to enable them to continue their work. An example of one of their projects was the release of the two bald eaglets from Batavia at Starved Rock last fall. 

As you are doing your spring cleaning bring over anything that can be donated to this good cause so money can be raised to provide care for the sick and injured wildlife Flint Creek works with. The link to their website is: Your donated materials are tax deductible.If the weather permits they may be able to bring some of the education wildlife for you to view.

Your donations of merchandise is tax deductible and it is a win-win as you will be clearing out clutter, but you will also be helping out a great cause. The donations can be brought to Niles animal Hospital 7278 N. Milwaukee Ave. Niles and we will store it until the sale or you can drop material off early in the morning the day of the sale. Donated materials can be dropped off at the animal hospital during regular business hours M, T, Th, F 8-6, W 8-5, Sat 8-2. We will remain an hour later on Saturday May 19th until 3 PM for more drop offs. We will be storing the items in a storeroom in the hospital until the sale. You can also bring materials the day of the yard sale, but we want to be up and ready to go by 8 AM. Call 847-647-9325 if you have any questions. You can also send inquiries/comments via email

Even if you have nothing to sell/donate come on by and buy! You will find all sorts of treasures and you will helping to fund their work at Flint Creek. They will probably also have a display and bring some education animals, weather permitting.

If you would like to volunteer your help for set up and helping to "sell" the items it would be appreciated. We will be hopefully beginning the set up around 6:00 AM on Sunday the 20th.

So several opportunities to participate, donate goods, volunteer to help with set up and selling or just coming by to purchase items, gathering up some treasures, but also supporting a great cause.

Questions, comments, concerns, contact Dr. Sakas at Niles Animal Hospital 847-647-9325, email or Dawn Keller at Flint Creek
Hope to see you there!
