In an effort to support the American Red Cross and its relief efforts in Haiti, Campus Security is sponsoring a fundraiser yard sale at Tusculum College on Saturday, February 27. The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Pioneer Gym.
According to Campus Safety Officer Josh Jordan, anyone wishing to assist with the event can do so by either making a cash donation or by donating gently used items for the yard sale. The day of the sale will be coordinated by Campus Safety along with assistance from Student Affairs, the Center for Civic Advancement and the Bonner Leaders.
Jordan said that items for donation should not be brought to campus until the week of Feb. 22. Persons bringing in items that week should contact Campus Safety, and they will pick the items up for storage until the yard sale on Saturday.
The yard sale will be advertised and open to the public, but all Tusculum College staff, faculty and students are encouraged to visit and shop.
All proceeds from the sale will be donated to the American Red Cross’ Haiti relief efforts and remaining items after the sale will be donated to local charities.
For more information on the project or to make a cash donation, contact Jordan, Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Ext. 5318.
