Gather up your household items and clothes that have outlived their usefulness. Leppert Mortuary and Crematory Services will host a community yard sale from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 26 in its chapel parking lot at 900 N. Range Line Rd. The sale will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association – Greater Indianapolis Chapter.
“We had done an activity at an Alzheimer’s community in Carmel and that really inspired us to want to give back,” said Abbi Martzall, Leppert’s community relations coordinator. “(Alzheimer’s) hits home for many of us here and for so many others.”
Martzall and Gretchen Leppert-Watko are coordinating the yard sale.
“We are redoing our office space in Nora, and I have been clearing out the clutter in my house, so it kind of came to us,” Leppert-Watko said. “I have a car load of things right now for the sale.”
Most items will be accepted for donation to the sale.
“However, we won’t take cribs or car seats or anything like that for safety reasons. But other than that all items are fair game,” Martzall said. “Just use your own discretion on what items you think can be sold. Our Website has a list of suggested items under the events section.”
Items already earmarked for the sale include a Nordic track classic skier, a wingback chair, two computer monitors and home décor accessories, as well as children’s items like toys. Photos of yard sale items will be posted on the mortuary’s Website prior to the sale.
Items for donation can be dropped off at the Range Line Road chapel as well as the Nora Chapel on 86th Street between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and from 9 a.m. to noon on Sundays.
Anything not sold will be donated to the Salvation Army.
Steve Simpson, WIBC’s morning news anchor, will serve as master of ceremonies. MCL Cafeteria will provide coffee, apple cider and other refreshments.
