Blue Ridge Hospice and Middleburg Bank are teaming up to sponsor a Donation Day in Middleburg on Saturday, June 6, from 9 a.m. to noon. The large Blue Ridge Hospice thrift shop truck will be available for the public to drop off gently used clothing, household items, books, and furniture at Middleburg Bank’s parking lot on Federal Street behind the bank.
The donations will be used to stock the shelves at Blue Ridge Hospice’s area thrift shops. Appointments may also be made that day for the pickup of large quantities of items or furniture. Proceeds from the Hospice thrift shop operations go toward the not-for-profit organization’s services and to support the care provided individuals who don’t have insurance or the financial means to pay for their care.
Blue Ridge Hospice can not accept the donation of large appliances, tvs, exercise equipment, computer-related equipment, or mattresses.
Blue Ridge Hospice is celebrating its 34th anniversary of serving the counties of Loudoun, Fauquier, Clarke, Shenandoah, Page, Rappahannock, Warren, and the City of Winchester. Last year, Blue Ridge Hospice cared for 1,176 patients and assisted more than 2,000 family members through its grief and loss services. $313,000 was provided in charity care to the communities it serves.
