Help the women's center with yard sale donations

The Women's Resource Center of Newport and Bristol Counties is now accepting donations to be sold at their Summer Yard Sale Spectacular.

Hundreds of thousands of unused items ranging from desk lamps and household goods to tables and forgotten antiques are lying idle in closets, basements, and garages nationwide. Now, those items can be put to use to help maintain the service of the Women's Resource Center of Newport & Bristol Counties.

Donations can be dropped off anytime at the office, located at 624 Main St. in Warren. All donations can be left on the porch in the back of the building.

On Saturday, June 21, the WRC of Newport and Bristol Counties will be hosting the summer yard sale at their Warren office. This ode to Summer Sale will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event will feature a $1 costume jewelry sale organized by local jewelry vendor Elizabeth Piluso. Everything is $1, including hair accessories.

For more information, contact Lori DiPersio at 846-5263 or email lori@wrcnbc.org.

The Women's Resource Center of Newport and Bristol Counties is one of six member agencies of the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence. They provide comprehensive services to families affected by domestic violence.
