Volunteer for UR's Big Yard Sale in May

2014 Big Yard Sale

It's a win-win-win Big Yard Sale: shoppers get great deals; thousands of items are not sent to the land fill; profits are used for other environmental projects! Don't procrastinate--volunteer now! Times, dates, places, and jobs are explained on the sign-up form. Fill out your work preferences, and hit DONE. Your selections will be sent to FOJG.

Location and Day for Membership Meetings 

Our meeting place and meeting day remain the same as the last year:
Jepson Alumni Center on the University of Richmond Campus, on each SECOND Wednesday! 

A few notes about this location:Jepson Alumni Center Map

  • Official Jepson Alumni Center written directions and link to map: http://events.richmond.edu/jepson-alumni-center/directions.html
  • If you Google "U of R Jepson Alumni Center" you will be sent to a different building and be given incorrect addresses: 101 College Road and 28 Westhampton Way -- these are incorrect! The Jepson Alumni Center's correct street address is 49 Crenshaw Way, Richmond, VA 23221. On GoogleMaps it will show up as Alumni Relations, U of R, near College road. Use Keller Road to enter campus, then take right. Alumni Center will be to your right; there is plenty of well-lit parking to your left, directly across from the Jepson Alumni Center.
  • In Google Maps, the building is labeled "Alumni Relations".

One thing hasn't changed: Well Recycle What Your Recycler Wont !! Dont forget to bring your old batteries, CFC bulbs and #5 plastics.
