A Good News Story

Jeff Scheckner, the community engagement manager of the United Way of Greater Union County, reports that the "Maidens in May" house tour was a "major success" and will result in the Tri-County American Red Cross and the Plainfield Rescue Squad sharing in the proceeds.

Dozens of volunteers came together to mount the event on May 31, coincidentally the date of the highly popular Friends of Sleepy Hollow Garage Sale that draws visitors from all over Central Jersey for the day. Scheckner reports there were 93 garage sale participants. The house tour raised over $7,000 and proceeds will be given to the two non-profits at 10 a.m. on Aug. 6 at the American Red Cross offices, 332 W. Front St.

Scheckner's press release credited a long roster of donors and supporters for the event and invited anyone interested to help with planning for next year's event. Contact Jeff Scheckner "at" for more information.
