PORT HENRY - Jarrah Jerdo has again organized a benefit lawn sale in Port Henry as a fundraiser for High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care.
This is the second year Jerdo, a Moriah High School student, has held a benefit lawn sale for hospice.
Assisting were Donna and Stuart Jerdo, Caleb Armstrong, Donnie Tesar, Jr. and Justin Garrand along with donations of sale items from the community.
Jerdo raised more than $1,000 for hospice.
High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care Development Coordinator Cheryl Olson accepted the donation.
"High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care relies on support from the community to ensure that no one is ever denied hospice service because of inability to pay," Olson said. "This sale is a great example of how groups or individuals with a simple idea can help in a big way. Our hats are off to Jarrah Jerdo and we deeply appreciate all the work that went into making this event a great success."
