Helping make every day better than the last

Autumn Woelk will start Grade 12 at William E. Hay Composite High School this fall, but she isn’t limiting

Autumn Woelk will start Grade 12 at William E. Hay Composite High School this fall, but she isn’t limiting her education to the halls of high school, instead working through the summer at Stettler Long-Term Care. Her job: raise money for programming.

Woelk is collecting items to be used for a loonie and toonie rummage sale, scheduled for Aug. 21 in the hospital atrium.

Money raised from the sale of the donated items will be used to continue existing or create new programming for the residents of Heritage House, the long-term residence at the hospital.

The programs consist of varied activities, all designed to keep residents physically and mentally active. Movie nights, games, and gardening are just some of the activities residents take part in, according to Woelk. The money from the rummage sale will help keep that going.

The rummage sale will run from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and will feature a loonie table of various items for sale for just $1, and then will otherwise be broken up into different categories, like household goods, toys, books, electronics and so on, Woelk said.

People can make donations by bringing them in to the recreational therapy department at Stettler Hospital, which is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. All donations for the sale should be turned in before Aug. 18, to allow for staff to price the items and prepare them for sale. Woelk is also able to pick up items as well, and people can phone 403-740-8585 with questions or a request for item pick-up.

Unsold items will be donated to Superfluity, ensuring the items either go to people who could benefit from them, or the money from the sale of items comes back into the community.
