Heaven Can Wait’s giant warehouse sales were the inspiration of two volunteers who wanted to help out.

In this day and age when recycling really matters why not consider decorating your house or office with some of the beautiful and practical items that you’ll find nowhere else but at the Heaven Can Wait Warehouse Sale!
Besides the obvious reasons for shopping at garage, yard and warehouse sales, such as saving money, re-purposing used items, going “retro”, or finding that one special treasure, now your purchases can help change the lives of many…dogs, cats and people alike. And here’s how…
Heaven Can Wait’s Spay and Neuter Clinic is always in need of funds to enable us to continue the work of stopping pet overpopulation. So 4 years ago a concerned HCWS volunteer couple, Richard and Kathy McCarty, also the proud “Mom and Dad” of three rescue dogs, began the Warehouse Sale out of their own home to raise money to purchase rolling racks for the feral cat clinic. It was such a huge success that there was demand for additional sales. The Warehouse Sale ultimately grew so big they are now run out of a public location.
The sales grew from being held at a private home to a big warehouse.
Not only do Rich and Kathy continue to operate the sale jointly, but they are accompanied by additional Heaven Can Wait volunteers without whom they couldn’t make this program happen. They are extremely grateful to all the volunteers for their devotion and welcome anyone who wishes to help the cause. ALL proceeds go to support the Heaven Can Wait Spay and Neuter Clinic. The sale has grown so rapidly that proceeds now amount to approximately $10,000 per month.
Another important part of this program is the company, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, who also volunteer their services by picking up large donated items and delivering them directly to the sale’s location. And yes, it’s FREE of charge!
Most donated items come from the general public and can be brought directly to the warehouse during sale days/times, or arranged to be picked up. In addition, T and L Estate Sellers, LLC routinely makes generous donations to the sale. Heaven Can Wait appreciates their ongoing support to the program.
The monthly sales are run by volunteers. Proceeds help the HCWS Spay and Neuter Clinic.
One more thing…Rich and Kathy could use help with the following as this program continues to grow:
- Volunteers are needed to help price, sell, and pick up items.
- Additional storage space would be greatly appreciated. Can anybody possibly spare some space?
- An individual or a team of people are needed to operate the sale from June - September.
Our warehouse sales have lots of furniture to offer.
So now that you know this inspiring story, and with all of those good reasons to donate to and/or purchase from Heaven Can Wait’s Warehouse Sale, what do you say we all “GO GREEN” and in doing so contribute to a great cause!
