Bates Clean Sweep raises nearly $16,000 for local nonprofits

The 10th annual Clean Sweep, Bates College’s “garage sale” of appliances, furniture, electronics and other goods donated by departing students, raised nearly $16,000 in proceeds that will be divided among 14 local nonprofit organizations. A community tradition, the June 19 sale drew crowds of enthusiastic bargain-hunters to Bates’ Underhill Area. “More than 100 volunteers from 14 local nonprofit organizations put in more than 1,000 hours of collecting, sorting, cleaning, organizing and pricing an arena full of items,” says Julie Rosenbach, event organizer and the college’s sustainability coordinator.
