Trully Safrit at Council on Aging

Daniel Carey, director of development at the Hendersonville Council on Aging, accepts a check from Trully Safrit, who is a volunteer with Books for Good.

Books for Good (BFG) will hold its annual holiday sale on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 26 and 27, at its store in Fletcher. All 50,000 books, CDs and DVDs will be discounted 25%.

Sale hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday; 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

BFG is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that sells items to benefit donor-specified charities.

Since it opened in 2014, it has raised more than $212,000 for 107 charities, most of which are local.

“We’re having the sale to make room on the shelves for newly donated items,” said BFG Founder Lynn Vorys. “More shoppers and more purchases mean more money for the charities.”

Books for Good is located at 50 Heritage Park Drive in Fletcher behind the Subway at the intersection of Butler Bridge Road and Highway 25 (Hendersonville Road).

The store is open weekdays, except Tuesday, from noon to 5 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
