Help Hurricane Victims

EXETER/DERRY — Finders Keepers has teamed up with auctioneer Dollar Bill Burke to help Hurricane Sandy victims.

Finders Keepers in Exeter and Derry will be collecting items that will be sent down directly to the flooded areas in New Jersey and New York. Dollar Bill’s Auction Outlet has generously offered to store and transport the collected goods so they may be delivered to the areas strongest hit. A truck will leave each Thursday night now thru Christmas. Finders Keepers and Dollar Bill’s have a history of helping others in the immediate area, but after seeing the aftermath of Sandy, it was clear that they could help these dis-placed families. Cleaning supplies, garbage bags, clothing, blankets are at the top of the list for needed items. These families have lost everything so each New Hampshire home has something they can contribute - but it must be clean since they have no means of washing anything.

“It was a natural fit since our store sells new and used items and Dollar Bill has the connections to implement the plan” said Laura Barker, owner of Finders Keepers. “I am always very cautious of how we help people - we want the needed items to get directly into the hands of the people that need them.”

Bill Burke will be transporting the donated items and delivering them to the hardest hit areas. This will put blankets in the hands of cold people and clean clothing on children. The truck will also be filled with food and water. Churches, neighbors, and customer of each location have already dropped off contributions. Facebook helped spread the word quickly and we already have a pallets worth. Other businesses are welcome and encouraged to participate.

Dollar Bill’s Auctions are held on Saturdays and they will be donating a part of their proceeds. Finders Keepers will sell items not appropriate for shipping and will donate that money to buy supplies. Their web site is www.FindersKeepersNH.com and has additional details.

Current drop off info: Finders Keepers, 88 Portsmouth Avenue, Exeter (772-1733); Finders Keepers, 16 Crystal Ave, Derry (818-4252); Dollar Bills,133 Rockingham Road, Derry (432-4781).
