Funded and run entirely by donations and volunteers, Sarah's House relies on fundraising events like this yardsale to keep them operational.

Outside of clothes, TVs, old mattresses and medical equipment, Event Coordinator Kasey Levesque says they are looking for donations of household items, furniture, kids' toys, and whatnot.

Levesque says 100% of the proceeds collected from the Yard Sale will go to help Sarah's House.

"We have raised just over $75,000 for Sarah’s House in the 10 years we have done this so far."

Levesque says Sarah’s House uses the money raised to keep the house running.

If you have any items to donate, you can drop them into the Maine Trailer container located at the Better Homes and Gardens Office on Union Street between 9 AM and 4 PM, Monday through Friday. Or, if you have questions or would like to arrange a drop-off outside of regular business hours, you can call Levesque at (207) 356-5574 or email her at kasey@greateasttitle.com.
