The Fredericktown community is preparing again to host the annual Christmas Walk Charity Auction to benefit Food For The Hungry. The auction will be held Saturday, Dec. 3, at 3 p.m. in the Fredericktown Senior Center at 2 East Sandusky Street. It is time to begin searching through basements, attics and homes for possible quality donations. The auction will feature antiques, collectibles, gift baskets, pies, cakes, homemade jams/jellies and service projects.
Donations can be dropped off at the Fredericktown Village Office. If you need an item picked up, call Laurey and Dean Grogg, 740-358-6846.
The number of people needing assistance from Interchurch Social Services and The Salvation Army has increased as the economy struggles. This Charity Auction provides funds to help meet the needs for food and other emergency services. Many who never thought they would find themselves in need are helped by donations to the auction.
The community is invited to search their homes and their hearts to see what they may be able to donate to make this auction special. Families, friends, neighbors, churches, and organizations are encouraged to partner to create themed baskets, service offerings, and gift certificates to donate.
