Turn your ‘Trash 2 Treasure’ for Corry Counseling Services

Journal photo by Maryann Mook Stuffed animals, tool kits, glassware, candles and office furniture are among the many new and used items that will be available during the Trash 2 Treasure Sale and Chinese Auction Oct. 2 at Corry Counseling Services, 45 E. Washington St. From left, Karen Croyle, executive director of Counseling Services; Denise Seib, director of mental retardation services; and Renee Parker, program director for family-based services, get ready to price some of the items for sale.

Corry Counseling Services has recently upgraded its furnishings, and employees have found themselves with a surplus of office furniture and equipment that is no longer needed.

But there is a need at Counseling Services, 45 E. Washington St., Corry. And the used furniture might be able to bring in some money to help that cause.

The extra office furniture — from filing cabinets and desks to a love seat and chair — will be sold during the first Trash 2 Treasure Sale and Chinese Auction.

Trash to Treasure will be held Oct. 2 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the Client Activity Fund at Corry Counseling Services.

Trash 2 Treasure will include more items than office furniture for sale. So far, items include stuffed animals, tools sets, candles, glassware, holiday items (including Halloween), and other household items.

Not only is the community welcome and encouraged to shop for bargain-priced new and used items during Trash 2 Treasure, but community members also are being asked to donate new or gently used items before the sale.

Baby clothing and other baby items will be accepted, but donors are asked not to bring adult clothing items.

Items may be dropped off at Corry Counseling Services Monday through Friday during normal business hours through Sept. 25.

Karen Croyle, executive director of Corry Counseling Services, said donations are tax-deductible.

“If people are doing one last cleanup before the bad weather returns and have items to donate, we would welcome them,” Croyle said.
