Donate items to the sale

Superfluity is a success because people donate valuable items that they no longer need or want. It provides a way to recycle and re-use both everyday items and special “treasures.”

Donations for the sale are now being gratefully accepted. They are welcome until noon on Sunday, April 3. However, early donations are especially appreciated.

Details about drop-offs

Beginning January 31, items may be dropped off at University Congregational United Church of Christ during business hours, Monday – Friday, 9 am – 4 pm or Sundays, 8:30 – noon.

If you are dropping off items during business hours Monday-Friday, you can park in the lot across from the business entrance on 16th Ave NE (north of the main sanctuary entrance.) Note your parking space number and sign in on the parking log just outside the church office.

If you are unsure about what to do next, just ask at the office.

If you are able, it is very helpful to Superfluity volunteers if you transport your items  downstairs to the Superfluity collection area. You may see a blue cart that you can use in the hallway. There is an elevator between floors. Ask at the office if you don’t see the cart, or need to know where to take your donations.

If you just have a few items to donate, you can leave them on one of the carts inside the door on 16th Avenue.
