OREGON – Serenity Hospice & Home accepts clothing and other items, which can, in turn, be sold to help those with a life-limiting illness.

Donated merchandise is sold at Angel Treasures, 4045 W. state Route 64, Mount Morris, and at Flamingo Palace, 109 S. Third St., Oregon. Even items that are not sold can help Serenity Hospice and Village of Progress through a new baling partnership. Shoes, purses, and belts can be baled or bagged and sold to a vendor to be used to help those in need in Africa and Central and South America.

Furniture in a condition for resale will be accepted at both locations. Donors, who are unable to deliver the furniture, may call Pam Salvador-Gould, volunteer coordinator at 815-732-2499 to schedule a pickup.

For more information, call Serenity Hospice at 815-732-2499.

Clothing items that cannot be sold at the resale shop can be baled at Village of Progress in Oregon for resale to a third-party vendor. The baled clothes, such as shoes, purses, and belts, will be sent to Africa and parts of Central and South America to help those in need.

Furniture in good enough condition for resale can be donated, and will be sold at the Flamingo Palace, 109 S. Third St.

For more information or to donate furniture items, call Pam Salvador-Gould at 815-732-2499.
