gold jewelry

If you have some old gold jewelry that’s just gathering dust, here’s an opportunity to convert that gold into cash. Bring your jewelry to Little House on Thursday, June 2, from 10:30 am to 2:00 pm, and Gold Gals will test it and hand you a check. The Peninsula Volunteers will receive a percentage of everything paid out during the event. Proceeds will be used to purchase 288 blankets for Meals on Wheels clients.

To RSVP, call Linda Drew (650-598-0190) or email goldparty@peninsulavolunteers.org. Little House is located at 800 Middle Ave. in Menlo Park.
