Hero Virtual Garage Sale

by | May 5, 2021 | Community

This spring cleaning season you’re invited to tidy your way to becoming a Second Harvest Hero through our Virtual Garage Sale, running May 17th to Friday June 18th. 

Using GiveShop’s on-line marketplace, Second Harvest Heroes are encouraged to donate, sell or buy gently used items on the free GiveShop app with proceeds going to support Second Harvest’sfood rescue operations. 

Four easy steps:

  1. Go through your cupboards and closets and dig out those gently-used items you no longer need.
  2. Take photos of what you want to sell at the Virtual Garage Sale
  3. Go to GiveShop and set up a free account and name Second Harvest as your designated charity.
  4. Mark your calendar for May 17 and get ready to help us achieve our $10,000 fundraising goal!

Would you like to make this a workplace fundraiser? Find out how by getting in touch with Kris-John Kucharik by email at krisjohnk@secondharvest.ca.

Thanks for your support!
