Pembroke ‘Junkin’ for Jordyn’

Please consider helping a local teen in need by donating unwanted items to “Junkin’ for Jordyn”; a yard sale that will be held on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (raindate Sept. 16). There will even be a jewelry liquidation sale. You can drop your items off prior to that date at 150 Pembroke St., in Pembroke. Following the yard sale, the Epilepsy Foundation of New England will pick up all unsold items and pay the fundraiser by the pound. (They are unable to accept barbecue grills, propane tanks, televisions, care seats or cribs). Because of a recent diagnosis of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Jordyn has been accepted into a clinical trial for new medication; however, the clinic is in Pennsylvania. This means she needs to make 11 long trips in a course of a year more than 400 miles away in order to participate. Funds will be used to help with travel, hotel and meal expenses for these trips.
