Cherry Health is hosting a thrift sale this week to benefit its Sheldon House. It’s a program focused on breaking the stigma of mental illness.

Cherry Health sought and received a large number of donations to help with its upcoming “Community Thrift Sale.” Tara VanDyke is the Clubhouse Manager for Sheldon House.

“Fundraisers like this are a great way for us to raise funds to support some of our key program aspects, including employment support for the members of our program, education resources and our social programming like and it also helps to assure that here is access to the clubhouse for those living with mental illness in Kent County.”

VanDyke says the thrift sale takes place Wednesday and Thursday and is done in partnership with Moxie Life Organizing. Owner Kate Wert says there will be plenty on hand thanks to generous donors.

“Something for everyone out there. Everything from children’s toys and women’s clothing to electronics, collectibles, housewares, furniture. A lot of great stuff and those sometimes hard to find items.”

All proceeds from the sales will benefit Cherry Health’s Sheldon House, which focuses on breaking the stigma of mental illness. More from Tara Van Dyke.

“Through meaningful work, supportive relationships, opportunities and resources, Sheldon house helps those with mental illness achieve their goals and lead more meaningful lives.”

Tara and Kate say the thrift sale will take place at a large warehouse, located at 2929 Ottawa Ave SW, Grandville. It runs Wednesday from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. and again Thursday, 9 am to 3 p.m.
