There are hungry people in the world. In our community and around the world, the problem of hunger and food insecurity has gotten worse during the COVID-19 pandemic.
St. Andrew's Lutheran Church working with Clearing House Auctions.
Anyone in the community may donate items that will appear in the auction. Please see the criteria below.
100% of all proceeds will go to the CT Food Bank and ELCA World Hunger.
What items are appropriate for this auction?
Online auctions look for higher end, quality, and unique items. Everything donated should be clean and in good working condition. Ideally, everything on auction will bring $20, some much more. The sky is the limit, but here are some items to think about donating:
Appliances in good condition
Collectable items of value
TVs (from last five years)
Jewelry with quality stones and settings
Large outdoor decorations (urns, statues)
Dishes with known value
Quality rugs or carpets in very good condition
Quality furniture in good condition, particularly from name-brand outlets
High-end clothing, shoes or accessories in new or near new condition
Books, particularly leather-bound or coffee-table books
Basically, anything that you believe is of some value is acceptable.
What items are not appropriate for this auction?
Ugly Christmas sweaters
