The Taylor/Darden Houses in Union City will be holding a fund-raising yard sale and bake sale Friday to raise funds to help the service recipients of these homes build an activity fund to purchase outside activity equipment for the service recipients to use while staying at the Taylor/Darden Houses. The service recipients of these two facilities sometimes come to these houses with nothing but the clothes on their backs, a spokesman said. The money raised will help in obtaining intellectually stimulating games and outside game equipment to help in the necessary daily exercise these service recipients need to keep their minds and bodies healthy.
The sale will be 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m. The activities director is asking for donations of yard sale items as well as baked goods from the community. Donations will be accepted at these facilities until Thursday at 5 p.m. The Taylor/Darden Houses are located at 2345 Norwood Drive in Union City. The activities director, Charles Darden, can be reached at 885-4479 to arrange pick-up of donations.
