Help The Environment and the Community at the Great South Side Sale
The Great South Side Sale, happening this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Fourth and Buchanan streets in south Bethlehem, is an example of both these things.
And its organizers need your help.
The sale needs people to act as greeters at its tent Saturday, and to fold clothing, straighten up tables, and set up/clean up at the beginning and end of the event.
If you’ve never heard of the Great South Side Sale, it works like this: Every year, when students move out of Lehigh University, they leave things behind — clothing, desks, tables, mini-fridges, books, curtains, rugs, etc.
The school puts all those items up for sale. The proceeds fund children’s education programs in south Bethlehem. Last year, the sale raised close to $20,000.
So by volunteering at the event, or spending money there, you’re helping build the community. By giving the Lehigh students’ stuff a second life, you’re helping the environment.
