One person’s trash could be treasure to the Clinton-Massie High School football team.
The spring cleaning rummage sale, as head coach Dan McSurley called it, will begin this weekend and with the help of Caesar Creek Flea Market and We Help Others Your Community Store, it will be a fund-raiser for the Falcons football team.
“The whole idea is if people want help moving stuff, if people have stuff to donate … anything you would donate, we’ll show up with a crew and clean it out,” said McSurley. “Our football team is going to go out and if grandpa, grandma, aunts, uncles, cousins, whoever wants stuff removed from their garage or wherever, that’s what our football team will do.”
McSurley said the process will begin this weekend but the football team will have items at Your Community Store at the flea market year round.
Darrell Petry is a 1998 graduate of Clinton-Massie High School. Petry, along with 1995 CM graduate Mark Hackney, co-founded We Help Others and Your Community Store. Petry is the lead treasure hunter.
Distribution bins for small, non-breakable items will be at several locations in the area. Bins will be located at the 73 Grill, the Corner Market in Clarksville and at the flea market.
The Clinton-Massie football trailer will be located in the school parking lot for larger items. All of these locations are available for people to drop off small items.
Items also can be delivered to Caesar Creek Flea Market on Saturdays or Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Ask for assistance in Aisle 2, Petry said.
McSurley said the clean-up crews are able to go anywhere in the area to gather items for donation.
McSurley said anyone interested in having items picked up can call him (937-728-5407). Also anyone interested in donating items can call 513-433-3550 or email Petry at the following: firstname.lastname@example.org.
