Swansea Animal Shelter Giant Yard Sale
Sunday, May 21 at 9 AM - 2 PM, 68 Stevens Rd, Swansea, MA
"We hold our biannual yard sale in the spring and fall to raise money for the animals in the shelters care. Medical needs are very expensive and raising money offsets the cost to taxpayers and allows us to afford some luxuries for the homeless animals in our community."
"Donations! We need your stuff! Redecorating the house for the spring, bring your old stuff to us. The area residents and our volunteers ALWAYS fill our basement with some great stuff. In fact, we always run out of room for it all. We can NOT take large furniture, old electronics, TV's of any kind, and JUNK. PLEASE DO NOT BRING US YOUR TRASH. We have to pay to dispose of it when nobody wants it. That old printer, yup, nobody want's that. The Mr Coffee from 1986, yup, NO GOOD. Recycle it or throw it in your own trash please. As always, THANK YOU!!!"
For more information, contact the shelter at (508) 679-6446 or visit our website or check out our Facebook page.

The Swansea Public Library is initiating an outreach program to provide services to patrons who are homebound due to health or transportation issues.
The library will work closely with each patron to identify the patron’s preferences. Specific titles or authors may be requested or the librarian will make selections based upon the patron’s interests. The items will then be delivered and picked up. Books in both regular and large print, as well as audiobooks, music CDs, movies and magazines are available.
If you or someone you know could benefit from this service, please contact the Swansea Public Library at 508-674-9609.
