Niagara University holding community 'garage sale' May 15-16by jmaloni
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 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.
