United Way seeks donors for silent auction

The St. Joseph County United Way is in the throes of preparing for its 2015 silent auction later this year at the county fair and its organizers are turning to the public for help.
United Way executive director Kelly Hostetler said many great items have been donated so far, but more are being sought. Hostetler said some examples of popular auction items include bicycles, camping equipment, tools, antiques, themed gift baskets, gift certificates, electronics and artwork.
Hostetler said items or services, large or small, are accepted and appreciated, and will be picked up by a United Way member. The donor’s name will be displayed with each item. Cash donations are also accepted and will be used to purchase items in the name of the donor.
Deadline to accept items is Aug. 31. The St. Joseph County United Way office can be reached by phone at 467-9099.
