The Saluda Fire & Rescue Auxiliary will host its second annual yard sale Saturday, May 5 and Sunday, May 6 at the Saluda Fire Dept. at 199 Greenville St. It will begin at 8 a.m. and continue until 3 p.m. and will be held rain or shine. A variety of plants will also be for sale.
This sale will support the fire department and the community. Recently the department was called to Big Bradley in the search for a missing hiker, which ended in a recovery. Behind the scenes, along with the Red Cross, the auxiliary used funds to buy food for the rescuers – enough high-energy, healthy food for about 40 workers.
The group has funds set aside to aid a family in the recovery from loss due to fire or natural disaster.
“It’s not a lot, but enough to replace clothes, medicine and documents,” said Nikki Ammerman of the auxiliary. “It costs money to replace a driver’s license, birth certificates and such. “
At Christmas, the auxiliary donated $500 to the Saluda Toy Drive, which helped 25 families.
“We are here for the community because the people of this community have always been here for us,” Ammerman said.
