A wide variety of clothing, household merchandise, sporting goods, toys, artwork and other items is accepted.
Donations are tax deductible. In addition, dollars raised at the sale will help enable the Basking Ridge-based VNA to offer important wellness services not covered by any insurance, according to the VNA.
