WE NEED YOUR STUFF!!! Shelley Scott Nelson is dedicating her annual charity yard sale to our animals at The CARE Foundation. The sale will be held February 16-17, 2019 at Shelley’s home in Longwood. She is accepting gently used items that will sell like furniture, sports equipment, clothes, tools, antiques, etc.

She can’t accept mattresses, tvs, entertainment centers, computers, or treadmills as they don’t seem to sell. She is also are accepting cash donations at this time, plus hamburgers for the BBQ and baked goods for the bake sale (military and first responders will eat free the weekend of the sale).
