Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
Heritage Woods of McHenry, a BMA affordable assisted living community, will host its Third Annual Shopping Spree on Oct. 19 and Oct. 20.
The community, which is located at 4609 W. Crystal Lake Rd. in McHenry, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.
This shopping event, which is set up like a community garage sale, will feature several racks of gently used clothes and other items.
Attendees can shop from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19 and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 20.
“Come out and shop with us. We will have lots of great deals on items you can use. Plus, all of the proceeds from our weekend shopping spree will help out local charities,” said Heritage Woods Administrator Wayne Vistine.
Last year, Heritage Woods of McHenry donated $250 to two organizations -- the Ronald McDonald House and Boys Town -- from the proceeds.
