Niagara University’s “2 Good 2 Toss” community garage sale program raised nearly $1,800 this year for student outreach programs – while also keeping hundreds of reusable items out of landfills.
This was the sixth year of the program, which invites students (and employees) to donate items rather than toss them into dumpsters or leave them behind as the rush to summer break begins.
With the support of the NU baseball team and Metz Culinary Management, items were then sold at a community garage sale that took place at Niagara on May 16. All proceeds are directed to Niagara University’s Office of Campus Ministry and the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
Created by members of NU’s Vincentian Mission Certificate program, the “2 Good 2 Toss” initiative has raised nearly $12,000 since being instituted.
