St. Joseph County United Way Executive Director Kelly Hostetler said the agency is in need of help for its 2021 Silent Auction at the upcoming county fair.
The Silent Auction is a major fundraiser for the Centreville-based agency, Hostetler said.
In addition to the option of attending the Silent Auction in person, the United Way has teamed with ReMax Elite Group for an online auction. Hostetler said the online auction features the same items as in the fair, only offered online for those who want to keep track of the items already bid on or for those not able to get to the fair.
Many great items have been donated but more are needed, she said. The United Way is willing to pick up most items, large or small. Cash donations are also accepted and will be used to purchase items in the name of the donor.
The St. Joseph County United Way office can be reached at 467-9099 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The seven-day fair starts Sept. 19.
