There will be plenty of parking available at the venue, high visibility, and all of the advertising for this community yard sale will be provided by Catawba’s Freshman Class.

Participants keep all of the profits from what they sell at the yard sale, and pay only a nominal fee for each yard sale space.  Members of the general public pay $10 per yard sale space, while Catawba faculty and staff pay $7, and Catawba students pay $5. Tables will be available to rent for $5 on a first-come, first-served basis.

Fifty percent of the profits will go to the freshman class and 50 percent will go to Operation Homefront, a Charlotte-based non-profit that supports military families who need assistance with bills, food and even housing.

If you are interested in participating, contact Madalyn Liefert, Freshman Treasurer via phone at (704) 796-5103 or by e-mail at mliefert14@catawba.edu.
