Usable Goods Needed for Good

Published January 29th, 2013 by Candy Taylor

Do you have any good condition items hanging around the house that you don’t want anymore? Don’t throw them away, give them away!!! Both the Northfield Union of Youth, also known as “The Key” and Habitat for Humanity Rice County are participating in the 5th Bridge Goods for Good Great Northfield Rummage Raid for Charity on April 29 & 30th, 2011. They need your usable goods i.e.…household, tools, sports equipment, non-upholstered good quality furniture, working small appliances, decorative items, antiques and collectibles, etc… (No old format TVs or old computers please) to sell at their Goods for Good sale.

The last two years, students from the Key sold usable items gleaned from the Northfield Clean Up Days to raise money for their youth programs. This was a great collaboration as it helped their organization and it prevented good useable items from ending up in the landfill. Unfortunately the dates for the Northfield Clean up Days and the Goods for Good event do not align well this year so we are asking for your help.

Drop off your good quality, usable items at “The Key”, their new location is 109 Sixth St. W. in Northfield anytime between 3pm and 8pm, Saturday April 23-Wednesday April 27th, 2011.

Habitat for Humanity Rice County is hosting their popular garage sale fundraiser in Northfield this year as part of the Goods for Good community garage sale event. They too need your good quality items to sell at their Goods for Good site. They also want your clean clothes in good repair. Donations for the Habitat sale may be dropped off at their sale site, 203 3rd St. W. in Northfield (former location of the Three Pines Gift Store and next to the Chamber of Commerce) weekdays between 9am & 4pm beginning this Friday. If you have a donation and can’t make those hours, call Dayna at 507-323-5167 to arrange an alternate drop off.

Interested in hosting your own Goods for Good sale site? Sign up on line at or call Candy Taylor at 507-581-3017, but hurry, deadline to sign up is April 21st, 2011.
