GEORGETOWN family raises money to walk against cancer |  Local News

Drop-off dates are May 1 to June 4. On June 5, a truck will pick up all of the donations. Sarcia, her husband, Richard, and their children, Dani and Ricky, agreed to have their home serve as the drop-off point again this year with the only caveat being that the donation period be shortened to just over a month.  Properly secured bags of clothing can be dropped off in front of the Sarcias’ garage door at 7 Sawmill Way in Georgetown. In inclement weather, bags can be left on the front porch. All types of clothing, shoes, belts, purses, scarves, linens, bedspreads, blankets, towels, curtains, drapes and sheets are accepted.

The Sarcias’ basement was so full of donations, they couldn’t walk in it for several months. “Hosting the collection was time consuming, but I would do anything to help Kathie,” said Aggie Sarcia of her former co-worker and longtime friend. Because so many people had time to clean out their closets, attics and basements, the group collected well over 1,300 bags of clothing.

“It took four people six hours to move all of the donations from the basement to the garage,” Sarcia said. The collection, which occurred over several months last year, required two trucks to pick up the donations stacked from floor to ceiling in the garage. For a few years, they collected the clothing at a church parking lot in Lynnfield, but like most things that changed last year. Because of the pandemic, the collection point was moved to the Sarcias’ home in Georgetown last year.

Due to the pandemic, the event has gone virtual again this year. Participants are asked to register at www.NorthshoreCancerWALK.org, raise donations from family, friends, neighbors and co-workers, and then complete their walk at any time and anywhere between now and June 27. Source www.newburyportnews.com The team, which has raised nearly $350,000 over the last 17 years, will also offer pickup service on the North Shore. Learn more about pickup options at www.facebook.com/teamkathiemitchell.

Team Kathie Mitchell will receive a check from the company that collects the clothes based on the weight of the donation. All proceeds will directly benefit the cancer walk. Furniture, books, children’s toys and other items are not accepted.
