All Items may be picked up at the Easton Lions Thrift Store, 192 Washington Street, Route 138, North Easton, MA, Saturdays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Ask for Markie V.
Gift Cards Mailing Option: (Physical items cannot be mailed.) To have your gift cards mailed to you, please send an email to Auction@EastonLions.org with your full name, as used on Bidding for Good, your mailing address, and the item names and item numbers.
THE WHY: For 35 years, the Easton business community has helped the Easton Lions help our local charities and community service organizations by supporting our annual Auction with donations of items and gift certificates. Given the challenges our local businesses have faced with the COVID challenges of the past two years, we are NOT asking the businesses for their help this year.
THE ASK: Instead, we are asking the Easton community (that means you!) to support our local businesses by purchasing gift cards and products from your favorite shop, restaurant, café, gym, landscaper, or other retail shop or service business and then, if you are so inclined, donate that product or gift card to the Annual Auction so that we can raise funds for local community service causes. The Auction will run from May 1-14. Use the “Open Donation Form” button below to start the process.
WHAT WE’LL DO: Every item posted on Bidding for Good will thank you, the donor, promote the business, and may include your personal note of appreciation or thanks about the business. Each item will link back to the business homepage, if they have one, and include their other contact information so others can support them too.
Once you have an item to donate, please download the PDF donation form to enter all the details or fill out the online form at Bidding for Good (BFG). The online form will require you to register or sign-in at BFG. Once the donation form is completed, mail the item with the form info or drop it off at the Thrift store on a Saturday in April.
