Old furniture cluttering up the basement? Cleaning out the closet for

The Sixth Annual Dalhousie Dump and Run - Community Garage Sale

WHEN: Sunday, April 27, 2008 from 8 am to 4 pm
WHERE: The Studley Gymnasium, Dalhousie Campus, University Avenue Entrance

The Dump & Run is a large community garage sale held annually. Community
members donate items, which are re-sold at this one day sale. The proceeds
from the sale are donated to local and international charities and
non-profit groups working on environmental and social justice issues. In the
past donations have been given to organizations such as Amnesty
International, the Ecology Action Centre, North End Community Gardens,
Oxfam, and the Parker Street Food and Furniture Bank, among others. 

The Dump & Run is currently seeking volunteers to help with donation
pickups, gym set-up, and to act as sales agents on the day of the sale.
Volunteer positions are also available on campus at Saint Mary's University
prior to the event. We are seeking volunteers now through the end of the
sale. There will be an open volunteer meeting on Tuesday, April 15th from
6:30-8 pm, in room 307 of the Dalhousie Student Union Building (6136
University Ave.). If you can't make the meeting but would still like to
volunteer please email us at halifaxdumpandrun at hotmail.com for more
