Operation Hope to hold 23rd Annual Community Tag Sale
The weekend of August 4th and 5th should be a hot one for Operation Hope, and we’re not talking about the weather. For 23 years, Operation Hope has been hosting a community-wide tag sale in the parking lot of the First Church Congregational, next door to Operation Hope’s main facility on Old Post Road. Proceeds from the event will support their programs to end hunger and homelessness in Fairfield.
You won’t see any bedding, televisions, computers, clothing, shoes, or books. But you will see everything else, from furniture and household goods to costume jewelry and sporting goods.The tag sale was originally held at the end of August at Wakeman Boy & Girls Club in Southport. But, it was often difficult to plan an event when many people were either still on vacation or dropping their kids off at college.
