Please join us for the DePauw Garage Sale on April 8th!

We're excited to announce a collaborative university effort to reduce waste, support community partners and bring faculty, staff, and students together. The Office of Sustainability's Thrifty Tiger and Alpha Kappa Alpha will host DePauw Garage Sale on April 8th from 10am-3pm in the auxiliary gym.

If you have any extra clothing  or unwanted items we would love to have you donate to make the event a success. You can either schedule a pickup with a Thrifty Tiger student by emailing or drop items in donation boxes. These donation boxes will be conveniently located in the residence halls and academic buildings from March 1st through April 7th. 

All DePauw Garage Sale proceeds will support Putnam County Family Support Services and student-driven sustainability projects. We hope you'll join us in supporting this event!
