about the tag sale
MAAP holds twice annual Tag Sale Fundraisers in the Spring and Fall. The sales take place across the driveway from MAAP in the Friends Room of the Friends Meeting at Cambridge. The sale includes clothing that is of good to new quality and is not of use to the community members MAAP supports (pieces that need to be dry cleaned or are otherwise costly to maintain) as well as designer clothing, finer housewares, antiques, and jewelry. While some items that do not sell are set aside for future sales, the majority of goods that are not sold our put out for MAAP's participants. Proceeds from the Tag Sale make up 10% of MAAP's annual budget. While we set aside items for upcoming sales year round, due to limited storage space we ask that you hold on to items you think may be sold at the sale until a few months prior if you are able.
