7th Annual Sale Success!

What a great sale! This year we expanded our sale to two rooms (for the first time!) – the Curry Student Center Ballroom and the Curry Student Center McLeod suites. It was a huge feat but with dedicated and hardworking volunteers we accomplished everything we set out to do. We were very glad we could reward our volunteers for their hard work with water bottles provided by PLAN and the occasional pie of pizza.

This sale we had approximately 1,300 NU students come to shop. We saved 3,360 cubic feet of goods from going to the landfill. We made a total of $8,840 (without taking out operating costs). After we pay for operating costs the rest of the money gets distributed to student groups that volunteered their time for our collection and sale.

The day after our sale we hosted Storage wars at our DoorToDoor pods to further distribute more items to the NU community. Some of the excess items we have gets recycled (plastic/glass/electronics/shoes/clothing). With a huge help from Balloons Over Boston we were able to donate the rest of our items to Goodwill.

We are ecstatic with all the work we were able to accomplish this collection and sale. We’re hungry to reduce, recycle and reuse more for our next collection!
