We’ve been sent info by Jean Pockrus ’08 about two sweet tag sales coming up.
The first one runs through orientation week, and proceeds benefit Zimbabwean refugees:
Starts August 26th and continues over Orientation Week in two locations:
Usdan Campus Center and 190 High Street
For sale, for cheap: Lamps, laundry baskets, mini fridges, electronics, amps, appliances, school supplies, CDs, DVDs, decorations for your dorm, storage units, dishes, books, and lots of clothes and shoes!
Funds raised from the sale will benefit Zimbabweans who have fled the country due to political violence and economic strife. The parents of Mufaro Dube ’08 will be on hand to chat and answer any questions.
The second tag sale, Waste Not!, sponsored by Eon, takes place on Sept. 1st, and proceeds go to Amazing Grace and and the CT River Coastal Conservation District.
Waste Not! is an EON-sponsored effort to reduce unnecessary waste and encourage items to be recycled from year to year.
At the end of the school year, EON collects your unwanted items. Then, in the fall, we hold a HUGE tag sale to sell those items back to the community, thereby keeping valuable items out of the landfill and in circulation. Proceeds from the sale go to Amazing Grace (St. Vincent DePaul’s food pantry) and the CT River Watch Program’s CT River Coastal Conservation District.
When: Monday, September 1 from 3-5 pm
Where: The Corner of Church and High, behind Alpha Delt.
The following are some of the items available at the sale: clothing, dorm furniture (chests of drawers, shelves, chairs, mattress pads), rugs, lamps, electronics/ appliances (printers, alarm clocks, phones, refrigerators, microwaves), educational materials (textbooks, books for classes), other books, posters, dorm decorations in general, bedding, dishes, hangers, mirrors, light bulbs, electric tea kettles, random knick-knacks, popcorn, brooms.
