GOT STUFF?

The money raised will go to support their activities on campus as well as help members to attend the Sigma Tau Delta International Conference in February 2012.

If you're afraid that once you finally get rid of your items that you will have to see them again, you won't! All leftover items from the yard sale will be donated to Catholic Charities and the Salvation Army. Get out with the old and in with the new just in time for the Holidays!
