Our first big sale of the year took place on the first day of school, so Oles rushed into the Pause in-between classes to check out the assortment of clothes, dorm appliances, accessories, shoes and much more! The volunteers who stepped up to help sort and manage the piles of goods deserve a huge thank you- we're already excited for next year!

Our most recent sale was a huge success, thanks to the hard work of our 30+ volunteers who came and helped throughout the day! We had hundreds of students, faculty, staff and members of the Northfield community come out to the sale to check out the jackets, shirts, hats and other warm-weather gear gathered during last year's collection. We sold 643 items, which is nearly THREE TIMES as much as last year's sweater sale, and we couldn't be more grateful for everyone's help!
