Deerfield High School’s fourth annual student run rummage sale to help the homeless will be held from 8 a.m. through 5 p.m. Oct. 6 - 8—the Columbus Day weekend—at the school cafeteria.
The sale is part of a program at Deerfield High School where students learn not only how poverty impact people, but the environment where everyone lives, according to a release from Township High School District 113.

“Last year we got terrific support from students, faculty, administrator and outside donors who allowed us to help hundreds of people in our community and to build a simple house for a poor family,” the District said in its release. “We will take any item that is in working condition and clean.”
Items can be delivered to the high school Oct. 5 between 4 and 8 p.m. at the cafeteria entrance. Receipts will be given to those who want to take a deduction off their income tax.
Special bargains will be available the final two hours Oct. 8. Come then and find a $5 bag stuffed with items.
