Over two acres and 75,000 square feet of merchandise awaits bargain-hunting shoppers under the tents at the VNA Fall Rummage Sale. The sale takes place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6, 7 and 8, at the Far Hills Fairgrounds, at the intersection of Route 202 and Peapack Road in Far Hills. The sale is open 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, rain or shine. 

Proceeds from the Rummage Sale support VNA home health, hospice and palliative care, adult day, and wellness services that improve the health and quality of life of community members in need. In addition, this fall a portion of the funds raised will be directed to relief agencies helping those impacted by the recent hurricanes in Florida, Texas and the Caribbean.

“As a mission-based organization with a tradition of community care, the VNASH understands the importance of providing on-the-ground, non-profit relief agencies with funds they can use to provide exactly the type of disaster relief supplies that are going to be most helpful,” said Dan Powell, president and CEO, VNA of Somerset Hills.
