Ongoing Fundraising Opportunities with The ARC of Benton County
In order to raise money for our Club’s operational expenses Zonta Club of Corvallis contracts with The Arc of Benton County to consign donated items. The Arc supplies us with stickers and our members and supporters put our group’s stickers on clean, working-as-intended items for resale. (see list of acceptable consignment items at http://www.arcbenton.org/thrift-stores/consignment/accepted-consignments).
Members deliver their items to The Arc store of their choice. Store staff will expertly price the items. At the end of the month the bookkeeper sends your group a check for 50% of the sales revenue.
This is a win-win. The Arc gets increased donations of items to stock their stores and we raise money for the Club!
