Friends of Children United Society (FOCUS) announced dates and times for accepting donations to this year’s Annual Rummage Sale. Thursday, Aug. 15, from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., and on Friday, Aug. 16, 8 am til 6 pm, donations will be accepted at 505 Grand Caribe Causeway in the Coronado Cays. The Rummage Sale will be held on Saturday, Aug. 17 starting at 8 a.m. and concluding at 1 p.m.

The Annual FOCUS Rummage Sale is the largest collection of gently used items to be sold and recycled in Coronado. Dishes, lamps, glassware, pottery, linens, sporting equipment, fishing gear, books, boating items, jewelry, children’s toys, and home decorator items will be sold along with pictures, photos, and paintings. The Grand Caribe Room is a large auditorium where tables will be setup to house the thousands of items to be sold.

No large furniture, or old, non-functioning electronics will be accepted as a donation. FOCUS members will monitor and review the donations to insure quality and recyclability of items are acceptable.

All monies received by the sale of donated items will be used to fund programs supporting battered, abused, homeless, and needy children in San Diego County. Volunteers are always needed, welcomed, and cherished by FOCUS.

Individuals with questions, or desiring further information can contact Roger Clapp at 619-437-6811.
