You read it right. You know that furniture you wish you had when you walk into a new model home?
Now you can buy it yourself at bargain prices at the Concern for Animals sale held on June 6th at Rick’s Automotive, 3527 Pacific Ave SE (see directions below) from 8 am to 5 pm. The donation of furniture includes pieces for the living room, dining room, kitchen and both the master and children’s bedrooms—all barely used at a model home in one of the Rob Rice Communities.
“We are so excited about Rob Rice Homes’ generous donation of an entire home’s worth of beautiful, show-quality furniture,” says Sarah Hinman, executive assistant for the Concern for Animals board. “That furniture is a huge addition to the many other donations the community will make throughout May. You will not want to miss this!”
And, the proceeds go to Concern for Animals, the local non-profit organization that for 35 years has assisted low income families with the food and medical needs of their pets and rescue animals. Concern for Animals depends on donations, membership, small grants and fundraising events like the annual garage sale to fund its programs that include low-cost spay and neutering, emergency medical care and a pet Food Bank.
Rob Rice Homes supports the mission of Concern for Animals, previously renovating the organization’s office at no cost when it moved to an older home on State Street. Rob and his wife Helena also sponsor the group’s annual Toast for Tails Beer and Wine Tasting Auction.
“Being animal lovers, Rob and I recognize the incredible work of Concern for Animals,” says Helena Rice. “We love that this donation of furniture will help families and seniors care for their pets. We have members of our family that are rescue animals and we understand the deep bond between pets and their owners. It is a great cause.”
Make Your Contribution
Throughout the month of May, you can donate your items every Thursday from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm at Rick’s Automotive at 3527 Pacific Ave in Olympia. Concern for Animals will provide tax-deductible donation forms for each donation.
Please note that they cannot accept clothing, TVs, computers, electronics or workout equipment for the sale.
Join us at Rob Rice Homes in helping to make this the biggest community garage sale ever while contributing to the health and well-being of hundreds of animals every year!
Directions for Donations and the Garage sale
Because the event typically draws hundreds of people who donate items or come out for the event to find incredible deals, Sarah Hinman wants everyone aware of the directions to Rick’s Automotive.
“The location is a bit tricky,” Sarah explains. “Though the address for the event says ‘Pacific Ave,’ the location is tucked back behind the Marine shop. So, please take Pacific to Fones Road and turn onto 6th St SE. Pass Cash & Carry on your right and reach a large warehouse with a sign to Rick’s. We will have our signs up, too.”
Don’t miss this year’s event and the chance to get that piece of quality furniture or any other of the great garage sale you are looking for.
“Our inventory will be loaded with must-haves at garage sale prices,” Sarah describes. “It will be a fantastic time to find a bargain and perhaps that piece of beautiful model home furniture you have always wanted!”
