Niagara University is organizing an end-of-year community garage sale for the sixth consecutive year. The public event will take place in the Kiernan Center on Wednesday, May 16, from 9 a.m.-1 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, 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, as well as mirrors, lamps, chairs, rugs, electrical equipment, books, and small refrigerators.

In addition, a hot dog sale to benefit the cause will be held at the Kiernan Center during the sale from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

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 has raised nearly $10,000 since being instituted.

The university is accepting and selling donated goods for this charity event and is not responsible for the condition of items purchased. Thank you for your understanding!

Co-chairs of the program are Virginia Pasceri and Derek Puff. Questions may be directed to Pasceri at
