TURNING TARNISHED TREASURES INTO GELLER GOLD
So many of us have tarnished treasures in our homes that just seem to gather dust and inch towards the back of drawers - old coins, gold crowns, a silver spoon that fell into the disposal, a gold earring that lost its mate many moons ago. Taken alone these treasures don’t seem like much, but gathered together these precious metals can be of great value.
Turning Tarnished Treasures into Geller Gold is a creative way that you can help raise funds for the Geller Center.
Here’s our challenge for you...
FIND your tarnished treasures,
and have FUN doing it!
Here's what you are going to look for:
>Gold Crowns (dental gold)
>Gold Jewelry (between 10K and 24K)
>Sterling Silver (including jewelry, flatware, art medals; no silver plated, please)
>Rare U.S. Coins
>U.S. Coins that predate 1965
Once you’ve found all your tarnished treasures...
Empty your penny jar, crack open your piggy bank -
these collections of pocket change can quickly add up!
When you have finished your treasure hunt, seal your treasures in a plastic bag along with a donation summary sheet (click here to download the sheet). Please list the items you are donating, and be sure to sign the sheet and provide your name and contact information. You can either drop these items off at the Geller Center (please call first to make sure someone will be present to receive your donation), or you can make arrangements for someone from the Geller Center to come to your home to pick up the items you would like to donate. You can also mail your treasures to the Geller Center. Please see below for Geller Center contact information.
When everything is sold, you will receive a HUGE thank you from the Geller Center, along with all the information you need to report your tax deductible contribution.
