Each spring Carleton College students donate unneeded items to the Lighten Up Garage Sale. Students donate a variety of items including: clothing, winter apparel, furniture, household items, books, bedding, sport equipment, and other fun things! The sale is held every year in Carleton's West Gym during reunion weekend. The proceeds provide essential funds for community non-profits and also served as an excellent lesson in "green" living!
