A Safe Place Self-Storage in East Dorset, Vt., will host an auction July 16 to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Bennington. The proceeds will be used to support Habitat’s “A Brush of Kindness” program and purchase supplies for Habitat’s next home.
The auction will begin at 10 a.m., rain or shine. An accompanying tag sale and auction preview will begin at 9 a.m. Donations and volunteers are still being accepted. Items to be auctioned include framed artwork, signed Christmas cards from George and Laura Bush, bath fixtures, assorted furniture, ceiling fans, Christmas decorations, collectible figurines, appliances, craft supplies and much more.
Andy Tarantino of A Safe Place Self-Storage provides free storage space year-round for Habitat to store donations for this annual event.
Habitat’s next home, to be built on Jennifer Lane in Manchester, Vt., will go to Michelle and Randy Lewis and their two children. Both are long-term Manchester residents. Michelle and Randy will contribute 500 hours of sweat equity to their new home, working with volunteers, family and friends. Upon completion, they will assume an interest-free mortgage that will enable Habitat to help more families.
A Safe Place Self-Storage has two facilities in East Dorset and one in Manchester.
