Lighten Up!

Thu, June 20, 2024 • 7:30am - 3:00pm (7h 30m) • Laird Stadium (215 Division Street North, Northfield, Minn. 55057)

Each Spring Carleton College students donate unneeded items to the Lighten Up Garage Sale. Students donate a variety of items including: clothing, winter apparel, small dorm room furniture, household items, books, bedding, sport equipment, and other fun things!

In 2023, the sale kept 23 tons of potential waste out of the landfill, including $4,000 worth of school supplies for local families, and raised $31,000 for local partner nonprofits.

The proceeds provide essential funds for community non-profits and also serves as an excellent lesson in “green” living and waste management.
