Pinckney Elementary School accepting donations ahead of annual ‘Really BIG Sale’

The annual Pinckney Elementary “Really BIG Sale” is Saturday, and there are still a few more days left for those who’d like to donate items.

Donations of garage-sale-type items can be dropped off at the school each morning for the rest of this week, and all day on Friday (remember, there is no school for prekindergarten through eighth grade that day).

The sale is one of the Pinckney PTO’s main fundraising events of the school year, and proceeds benefit the organization.

The sale is open to the public and will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in the gym at Pinckney, 810 W. Sixth St. The sale typically includes hundreds of items including clothes, toys, furniture, home goods, books and electronics, and all items are pre-priced.
