Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) March 23, 2011
Consolidated Credit Counseling Services, Inc. is sponsoring the First Annual 2-1-1 Broward Charity Tag Sale on Saturday, March 26 from 8am to 1pm at JA World in Coconut Creek, FL. All proceeds from the event will go to 2-1-1 Broward, Broward County’s only 24 hour helpline that assists individuals seeking crisis intervention or assistance.
Items ranging from home appliances and exercise equipment to business suits and evening wear will be sold for a fraction of their estimated value. “The 2-1-1- Broward Charity Tag Sale is expected one of the biggest second hand sales in Broward County. We want to thank all of the local businesses and non-profit organizations that donated items to be sold at the event. The community has come together to support 2-1-1 and we hope many people from the community will come out and support the event by purchasing great items at low prices,” said Gary Herman, president of Consolidated Credit.
People can also “like” the event on Facebook for a chance to win a $25 voucher towards items at the sale. Visit http://www.facebook.com/pages/2-1-1-Broward-Charity-Tag-Sale and automatically get entered into a contest as well as find more details about the event.
2-1-1 help-lines are offered in cities throughout the United States, and although most 2-1-1 help-lines receive government funding, 2-1-1 Broward does not. For this reason Consolidated Credit has rallied their more than 200 employees to coordinate this charity tag sale. “2-1-1 Broward is a great non-profit that consists of amazing employees with backgrounds in varying fields from psychology to behavioral health that assists people when they are facing issues that require emotional support, empathetic listening or counseling,” Herman said.
When someone is faced with a crisis in the middle of the night, 2-1-1 Broward is the only 24 hour helpline dedicated to providing those individuals with support, information and resources about housing, food, financial assistance, and relief from abuse, family issues, depression, childcare, and suicide prevention.
Consolidated Credit wants the citizens of Broward County to get involved with this charity event and come out on Saturday, March 26 at JA World from 8am to 1pm. JA World is located at 1130 Coconut Creek Blvd. in Coconut Creek just west of the turnpike. People can call 954-377-9151 if they have any questions.
