DURHAM, N.H. — Several University of New Hampshire student-athletes volunteered at Durham’s annual 700 Family Yard Sale at The Church of St. Thomas More on Saturday, Sept. 6.
Transferring their effort from the field to a gigantic yard sale, volunteers helped with the set up, organization, sales and clean up of the event. These student-athletes also worked together to deliver large items such as furniture and pianos personally to buyers’ homes.
“The work of our athletes on Friday and Saturday was a huge help to the organizers,” said Cathy Coakley, coordinator of student-athlete development. “The response from them, other volunteers and townspeople about our athletes’ participation, work ethic and interaction has been truly outstanding. This event would never be the success it is without the help of UNH athletes.”
For more than three decades, the sale has joined families from around the Seacoast region together to raise money in support of church needs and to help replenish the food bank for Durham, Lee, Madbury and Nottingham. Available items included clean clothing, furniture, books, appliances, DVDs, musical instruments, sporting goods and freshly baked goods.
