Press Release

On Friday August 28 through Sunday August 30, Audrey and Pat Hanson of Spooner opened their garage and driveway to offer a Friends and Family Free Sale. All items at the sale were free and a free will donation was accepted to benefit local families in need through Lakeland Family Resource Center. Community members and friends and family of the Hansons made donations to make the Free Sale a success!

Audrey Hanson said, “ We could not have done it without the help from our daughter Kim, Brother- in-law Donnie, and Friends; Cheryl, Mabel, Tami, Donna and Norman.  We are truly blessed with their help.” Audrey’s husband Pat handmade the free will donation box and stand and put in many hours of setting up and helping with the Free Sale.  Audrey said, “ Without his devoted help all day-everyday, I could not have accomplished anything.”

Lakeland Family Resource Center is honored by this opportunity to partner with such genuine community members and overwhelmed with the support of our community. Lakeland Family Resource Center Executive Director Renee Luell said “We are truly thankful for people who come together in our community to support one another and are willing to volunteer their time and resources.”  The three day Free Sale raised $900.00 that will be used to support families in need through Lakeland’s programs.

Thank you to Pat and Audrey, their friends and family and all who made donations, your generosity will impact many families in our community!
