3/23-25: Clear the Floor & Donate More

The YMCA at VT Thrift Shop will be holding its annual Clear the Floor event on March 23-25. All items in the Thrift Shop will be 20% off. The hours for the sale are Friday, March 23 from 9:00am-8:00pm; Saturday, March 24 from 8:00am-8:00pm; and Sunday, March 25 from 12:00noon-5:00pm.

While shoppers are bringing home found treasures at the Thrift Shop, community members are also encouraged to donate their no-longer-needed items, to restock the store.

Proceeds from this sale will remain local, to support Y programs in Blacksburg and the surrounding communities. YMCA at VT community programs are: the Hale Y Community Garden, Pottery Studio, International Womens Meeting, English as a second language conversation classes, Open University continuing education classes, and the Diabetes Prevention Program. In addition, Y student programs provide Virginia Tech students volunteer and leadership opportunities and include: “alternative service breaks”, after-school programs in local elementary schools, Healthy Kids Day, Y-Toss, and Senior Connections, among others. The YMCA also recycles textiles, metal, electronics, and batteries.
