The United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties will host the Get It Before It’s Gone Sale from 2-7 p.m. July 7-9 at the former hotel on Scott Avenue, 20 Scott Ave., Suite D.
Items from the former hotel will be sold at discounted prices. The event is three days only, so once it’s gone, it’s gone. Cash or credit cards will be accepted.
Proceeds benefit United Way of Mon and Preston Counties and Morgantown Community Resources.
“We’re so excited and thankful to be able to sell these items from the former hotel for a good cause. There are couches, end tables, chairs, lamps, mini-fridges, you name it. Pretty much anything you’d expect to find in a hotel. We’re working right now to organize these items and can’t wait to sell them during this huge event,” said Servando Arredondo, engagement manager for the United Way. “No doubt, this will be a large sale and items will go quickly, so make sure you get up here one of those days because once the items are gone, they’re gone.”
United Way runs its Helpful Harvest Food Program out of the space at the former hotel. Helpful Harvest gets food into the hands of those who need it most by providing fresh produce and nonperishable items to more than 40 pantries and programs in Mon and Preston counties.
About 13,000 people each month receive food through the program. Helpful Harvest is made possible by the Hazel Ruby McQuain Charitable Trust and the Milan Puskar Foundation.
In addition to funds received from the trust and the foundation, Helpful Harvest has leveraged $1,405,435 in produce and USDA Farmers to Families Food Boxes to the program.
United Way helps to fund 39 programs at 26 agencies in both counties, as well as runs internal programming, such as Helpful Harvest, WV211, the Monongalia County Family Resource Network, and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
