Giant Yard Sale

October 7 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm


 How can I donate items? 

Thank you for helping our patients through your donation of gently used items for our Yard Sale.

The trailer to accept donations is located in the upper parking lot on the righthand side at 170 Possum Hollow Road, Newark, DE 19711.

The trailer is open to accept donations on

Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Fridays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sundays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

In consideration of our patients, volunteers, and staff, we ask that Yard Sale item donations are only brought during these set days and times. The summer is our busiest season and most of our resources are used to care for the hundreds of baby birds that enter our nursey.

The Giant Yard Sale is an annual fundraiser that benefits our native wild patients here at Tri-State. Items are donated by the community throughout the summer to be sold at the Yard Sale in October. All sales help native wild birds in need receive professional medical treatment and care!
