The K.E.E.P., Inc. Board of Directors has designated Saturday, Aug. 24 and Sunday, Aug. 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., as an opportunity for other centers and the general public to participate in a liquidation sale of its many child care and office assets.
The sale will be held at 99 Demarest Road in Sparta, rain or shine.
Board President Barbara Vandenbergh, in announcing the sale, expressed sincere gratitude to all those who have stood by K.E.E.P. during this difficult time, donating time, energy and, in many cases, money.
"Liquidating a business is always a daunting task but this is made all the more difficult because K.E.E.P. meant so much to us personally and to the families and communities we served for so many years," Vandenburgh said. "We are doing our best to honor all our financial obligations to our employees, our families and our creditors. This sale will help us do that and will, of course, benefit those who purchase items at a fair price.”
