Hope Springs is a new organization in Danville and Boyle County that seeks to assist local persons who have multiple sclerosis. On May 28, the group will hold its first annual Hope Springs Yard Sale.
Through an innovative agreement with Centre College, the sale will feature any items abandoned in the dorms by Centre students at the end of the year (furniture, rugs, stereos, etc.). Local citizens also are donating items to the sale.
The Presbyterian Church in Danville has agreed to host the sale in its gym from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Hope Springs organization expects to have a wide range of home furnishings, kitchen items, books, tapes and collectibles.
Proceeds from the sale will be used primarily to help local MS victims cover the cost of water therapy classes. A portion will be donated to the national MS organization, which funds research toward a cure.
