MERR yard sale set Aug. 28 in Lewes

August 18, 2021

The Marine Education, Research and Rehabilitation Institute Inc. will once again hold its annual yard sale from 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Aug. 28, at its facility on Pilottown Road, Lewes. 

MERR’s yard sale is one of the major fundraisers for the organization.  This year, the event will feature its usual assortment of items for home and garden, a bake sale with an array of homemade treats, and an all-new plant sale to be featured on the grounds. 

All funds raised during the event will go to the year-round efforts of the nonprofit organization, which serves as the only response and rescue organization for marine mammals and sea turtles stranding in Delaware.  Care for these animals includes food and care, veterinary treatment, transportation and supplies.

MERR also hosts a number of outreach endeavors in which representatives travel to area schools and events to inform students and the general public about ocean conservation and the marine mammals and sea turtles that visit Delaware.

The yard sale at the MERR facility, located at 801 Pilottown Road, next to the Coast Guard Station, will take place rain or shine.

Donations are still being accepted for the sale, including unwanted gold jewelry items. Anyone with an  item to donate for the event, should call 302-228-5029, or email
