Mendham Country Day School students learn the value of community service
Students from Mendham Country Day School in Basking Ridge, NJ spent several hours at the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) of Somerset Hills bi-annual Rummage Sale, learning first-hand about the importance and enjoyment of community service. After taking a tour of the sale, the hard-working and enthusiastic students assisted VNA Rummage Sale volunteers sorting and organizing donated merchandise in the sporting goods, housewares, costume and book departments.
Proceeds from the sale help the VNA give all families equal access to the agency’s full range of home health and hospice care services, regardless of their ability to pay. Funds raised also ensure that all members of the community can benefit from important and innovative programs uncompensated by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance.
The VNA Fall Rummage Sale will be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 7, 8 and 9 at the Far Hills Fairgrounds, located at the corner of US Route 202 and Peapack Road in Far Hills, New Jersey. The sale is open 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, rain or shine.
