Niagara University holding community 'garage sale' May 18-19


Fri, Apr 29th 2016 09:40 am

Niagara University is organizing an end-of-year community garage sale for the fourth consecutive year. The public event will take place in the Kiernan Center from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, May 18, and Thursday, May 19.

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 computers.

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 more than $5,000 since being instituted.

Nu noted, "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!"
