City College of San Francisco has come up with a unique (and hopefully successful) way of raising money to restore some 800 classes slated for elimination this year and increase counseling hours for the Spring 2010 semester. They are accepting donations for a massive garage sale and flea market scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 24. Milton Marks, President of the City College Board of Trustees, is soliciting help in publicizing the event and putting out a call for donations!
City College has been decimated by cuts over the past two years, and the cuts are affecting the future prospects of a generation: City College is the lowest-cost and most accessible option to the most disadvantaged students in San Francisco, and it is a problem for all San Franciscans if the institution can’t fulfull that mission. If you can, please donate items; and come to the sale on Oct. 24 to find great deals and support a great cause!
