Drop-off dates set for Friends Meeting yard sale

Sep 11, 2023

MATTAPOISETT — The Mattapoisett Friends Meeting will have donation drop-off times in preparation for its yard sale on Saturday, Oct. 7.

Donations can be dropped off at 103 Marion Rd. (Route 6) in Mattapoisett on Wednesday, Sept. 27 or Saturday, Sept. 30 between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. Someone will be in the community hall to receive donations.

If neither of the above times work, email mattquakers@gmail.com. Do not drop off furniture or large appliances; however, these items could be accepted by prior arrangement. Donations of electronics will not be accepted, but washed and ready-to-wear clothing will be accepted.

This year, the meeting has a one-item wish list: a weed wacker.

This year, earnings from the sale will go toward renovations of the Mattapoisett Friends community hall, including replacement of a rotted door and replacement of shingles with extensive damage from “an enthusiastic woodpecker,” according to a press release.
