Garage Sale


One person's junk can be a school's treasure! Organize a garage sale, and you'll clean out your house and give back to the community at the same time. You can make the sale as small or large as you like, depending on the number of donated items and the possible locations for the sale (the school gymnasium might be an option on the weekend, if there are no sports games).

One parent says: "Box up and sell everything you haven't used over the past year. I know it's hard, but it's for your own good and the good of the school. The school gets 100% of the profits. You get a clean house."
