The Big Yard Sale

Shop outside at our Big Yard Sale on Saturday, June 20th & 27th Social Distancing Approved!

Join us for The BIG Yard Sale on June 20th and 27th at 1540 Pontiac Avenue in Cranston. We will be selling household items, books, furniture, and more!

These items were generously donated to us during the last few months, but we are no longer able to store or distribute them. We will be taking every precaution to keep our community safe and maintain government guidelines for social distancing. If you need something for your house, this is the place to look- safely!

All of the proceeds of these sales will be used to continue to fund our mentoring programs at a time when the youth in our community needs them the most! Make a BIG difference by picking up some little treasures! Items will be priced to move and deeply discounted! Come check it out!

COVID19 has impacted many of us in drastic ways and its impact on the most financially vulnerable has been especially dire. There are nearly 300 kids in BBBS’ programs, of which 90% of them are at or below the poverty level. This event typically brings $20,000 - $30,000 for our program and the youth we serve. Please consider donating whatever you can by visiting BigsRI.org/Donate.
