Baler operation to be on display

Published: Saturday, May 10, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

OREGON – An open house to show Serenity Hospice & Home’s baling operation will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday at Village of Progress, 710 S. 13th St.

The baler condenses nonsalable clothing donated to Angel Treasures Resale Shop in Mount Morris into 1,000-pound bales, which are wrapped with wires. A vendor buys the bales and sells them to people in need in Africa and South and Central America.

Proceeds from the operation benefit Village of Progress and the hospice. For more information, call 815-732-2499.
