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: http://www.flintcreekwildlife.org/. 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

Hospital 847-647-9325, email email@example.com or Dawn
