The University of Notre Dame’s annual Old2Gold year-end campus yard sale will take place from 7 to 10 a.m. June 8 (Saturday) at the St. Joseph County 4-H Fairgrounds, 5117 Ironwood Road, South Bend. All of the proceeds will benefit more than 15 local nonprofit organizations.
Over the past six years, the University has raised $205,500 for local charitable organizations through the annual sale. The sale will include thousands of items donated by Notre Dame students at the close of the academic year, including clothing, bicycles, furniture, refrigerators, storage bins, bedding, housewares and other items. This year, the sale will also include new, discounted apparel from the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore and used office furniture from Notre Dame Surplus.
Notre Dame staff and hundreds of community volunteers are expected to serve an estimated 2,500 hours sorting, transporting and displaying about 60 tons of merchandise. Old2Gold is one of the University’s sustainability efforts. In addition to raising money for local organizations, Old2Gold promotes the reuse of items, keeping several tons of material out of landfills.
The sale is open to the public. Admission tickets can be purchased for $5 per person beginning at 6 a.m. the day of the sale. Children 6 and younger are admitted free. Only cash is accepted. Free parking is available at the fairgrounds. The parking lot will open at 4 a.m. on the day of the sale.
