High Plains Outreach Center sets rummage sale

Woodward, Okla. — Woodward's High Plains Outreach Center is holding a rummage sale on April 27.

The event is a fundraiser for the center, said Executive Director Kristi Prophet.

"It will help benefit the shelter here," she said. "We kind of clear out our clothes shed and make room for some new stuff."

Prophet said the center has enough clothes but they are taking donations of larger non-clothing items for the rummage sale.

"If someone wanted to donate something, we have another shed we could store it in until the 27th," Prophet said.

If you would like to donate to the rummage sale, you can call the center at 580-254-5612.

The sale will start at 8 a.m. and run "until we're done," Prophet said.

The center's mission is to provide services and shelter for the homeless.

"We basically help people transition to get back on their feet and in permanent housing," Prophet said. "We have a total of 10 beds and we stay pretty full most of the time."

According to the center’s March newsletter, High Plains Outreach helped 25 clients in January and February.

In addition to the rummage sale, people can donate in other ways to the shelter - with cash or various items. The needs list includes canned goods, blankets, bath towels, shampoo/conditioner, soap/body wash, paper towns, kitchen trash bags, disinfectant spray and more.
