Channing-Murray seeks your old junk

Got junk? Need to clean out that garage? That closet?
The Channing-Murray Foundation/Red Herring Vegetarian Restaurant is now seeking donations for our upcoming Summer Rummage Sale to benefit the Red Herring Renovation Project. Learn more about our goals for the Red Herring here.
We are accepting donations of housewares, clothing (all sizes; no intimates), electronics/technology, games/instruments/toys, tools, and furniture. All rummage sale proceeds will benefit capital improvements and programming initiatives at the Red Herring and any sale leftovers (*besides furniture, which will be donated to the ReStore in Champaign) will be donated to a brand new women’s shelter in Cotacachi, Ecuador through the Four Walls and a Roof project (more information here), which benefits domestic violence survivors and their children.
We are accepting donations at the following dates/times:
Thursday, July 4, Noon3:00 p.m.
Friday, July 5, 8:30 a.m.3:00 p.m.
The Channing-Murray Foundation will offer a receipt if the donation value is greater than $250, so that you can claim the receipt as a tax-deductible donation for the upcoming 2014 IRS tax season. Make sure to grab the attention of our bookkeeper, Paul Lee, to process the itemized deduction of your donation.
Please email our bookkeeper with any questions you may have regarding donation drop-offs at or call (217) 344-1176.
Below is the flyer for our upcoming sale!
