AU Community Sale to Benefit Four D.C. Nonprofits

By Adrienne Frank

Forget the garage—AU’s community sale will be the biggest on the block.

The first annual Project Move-Out Community Sale, April 30, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Tavern, will feature gently used clothing, unopened toiletries and cleaning supplies, nonperishable food items, electronics, furniture, linens, and office supplies. Nothing will be priced over $10.

The sale will also help AU reduce its carbon footprint, by eliminating trash runs students make as they move out of the residence halls for the summer.

  • Drop off items on the quad, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., April 21–22 and April 27–29.
  • Volunteers are also needed to sort donations and work the sale.
  • Proceeds benefit M.O.M.I.E.’s TLC, a Washington-based mentoring program.
  • Unsold items will be distributed to A Wider Circle, the Capital Area Food Bank, and Damien Ministries.
