Annual MERR Yard Sale set May 19 in Lewes

May 16, 2018

The Marine Education, Research and Rehabilitation Institute yard sale fundraiser is set from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, May 19, at its facility on Pilottown Road.

All funds raised during the event will go to the year-round efforts of the nonprofit organization, which serves as the first response for all marine mammals and sea turtles stranding in Delaware, including food and care, veterinary bills, transportation and supplies. MERR also hosts a number of outreach endeavors in which representatives travel to area schools to inform students about the neighboring marine mammals.

The yard sale is one of the major fundraisers for the organization, and will also feature a bake sale and refreshments throughout the day. The yard sale at the MERR facility, 801 Pilottown Road next to the Coast Guard Station in Lewes, will take place rain or shine.
