Niagara University Holding Community ‘Garage Sale’ May 15-16

April 30, 2014  |  by Michael Freedman

For the second year in a row, Niagara University is organizing an end-of-year community garage sale. The public event will take place in the Kiernan Center on Thursday, May 15, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday, May 16, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Instituted by members of NU’s Vincentian Mission Certificate program, “2 Good 2 Toss” is a service project that invites all NU students (and employees) to donate items that are clean and in good condition, as well as nonperishable food, rather than toss them into dumpsters or leave them behind as the rush to summer break begins.

Items for sale may include small appliances such as toasters and microwaves; electrical cords; lamps; chairs; rugs; electrical equipment; books; computers; and unopened nonperishable food goods.

All proceeds benefit Niagara University’s Office of Campus Ministry and the St. Vincent de Paul Society. Unsold items in good condition will be donated to the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store.

The initiative raised nearly $1,500 last year.

Niagara University students may donate items at the Kiernan Center on Friday, May 9, between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. or at designated drop-off spots around campus. Employees may bring donations to the Kiernan Center (Scaffidi Gym) any time after 9 a.m. on Monday, May 12.

Please note that we cannot accept open food, broken or soiled items or undergarments.

In addition, a hot dog sale to benefit the cause will be held at the Kiernan Center on Friday, May 16, from 12 to 2 p.m.
