A total of $2,300 was raised on Saturday for the American Red Cross and its relief efforts in Haiti at a Tusculum College yard sale, sponsored by the staff of the Campus Security Office.
Staff, faculty and students of the College donated the items for the sale.
According to Campus Safety Officer Josh Jordan, the success of the event was a tribute to the generous donations of items, time and financial resources by everyone who helped with the event, including students, faculty, staff and friends of the College.
In addition, Jordan noted that the Food City store on Snapps Ferry Road in Greeneville also participated by donating 300 plastic bags for use at the sale.
He also thanked all the volunteers who worked the day of the sale, which was coordinated by Campus Safety along with assistance from Student Affairs, the Center for Civic Advancement and the Bonner Leaders student organization.
The check was presented on behalf of Tusculum College to representatives of the American Red Cross on Monday, March 1.
