Clean Out, Stock Up, Catch a Show
Don't leave Hillsborough for weekend fun.
Cleaning out? Don't throw it out.
No matter what you're trying to offload, two high school groups would be happy to take it off your hands.
The Hillsborough High School Debate Team hosts its annual rummage sale this weekend, and is collecting everything from toys to furniture.
Old clothes? The Hillsborough High School Band is happy to take care of those for you. The group will be collecting clothes and other items from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday. They'll take everything from clothes, briefcases, household goods, shoes (in different bags from the clothes, please) to toys.
