For the 17th consecutive year, Centre College will host the end-of-year Hope Springs Yard Sale on Friday, May 24, starting at 7:15 a.m. in Chowan Hall.
Hope Springs was created to raise money for financial assistance for local citizens with multiple sclerosis. Almost all items in the sale are donated by Centre students as they move out of the residence halls at the end of the year.
Recently, it was expanded to give funds to other local organizations such as the Humane Society and the Soup’s On Us program. To date, Hope Springs has raised over $75,000 for the local community. In addition to giving financial assistance to individuals and organizations in the area, it also serves as a green initiative in reusing thousands of items and keeping them out of landfills.
The steering committee for the yard sale is comprised of its three founding members: local author Patsi Trollinger; Sarah Scott, director of the Grissom Scholars Program and coordinator of Centre Scholarship Programs; and Ann Young, director of student life and housing.
The yard sale is open to the public, and cash is the preferred method of payment.
