Donations being Sought for 27th Annual We Care Auction Set for Dec. 1-2 PDF Print E-mail

Donations are needed for the annual We Care Auction which is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, December 1 and 2.


The 30-hour auction begins at 12 noon on Friday, December 1 and ends at 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 2.

The We Care Auction raises money to buy warm clothes for the school children in Scott County. Last year, 1,095 children received warm clothes before the Christmas break. 100% of the money raised will be paid for the school children’s clothing.

It takes a lot of items to sustain the 30 hour auction. Donations may be dropped off at I105.3 WMPI Radio on the square in Scottsburg. Anything that can be turned into cash such as toys, tools, household items, outdoor merchandise, something that you like or think is great would sell on the We Care Auction.

Lots of people do their Christmas Shopping during We Care. While everyone is out shopping this weekend, remember the less fortunate children and pick up an item or items to donate. Drop them off at WMPI Radio, 22 East McClain Avenue in Scottsburg.

The We Care pick-up center will be on the eastside of the square next to Jendy’s Pizza. It will be open several days prior to the start of the 27th annual We Care Auction. People can stop by and start making their list of the items to bid on this year.

The Scottsburg High School Student Council will be taking pictures of all the merchandise again this year. The pictures will be on the We Care website and on Facebook.

To place your bids call I105.3 WMPI Radio at 1-812-752-3688 or 1-800-441-1053. The live auction begins at 12 noon on Friday, December 1 and concludes at 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 2.
