“Carlisle’s Largest Yard Sale”

Each year Dickinson College students prevent abundant landfill waste by choosing to donate thousands of gently-used items to United Way of Carlisle & Cumberland County’s U-TURN Community Yard Sale.  It is our way to Reduce, Re-use, and Recycle, and the dollars raised all go back to help our community. 

7:30 am to 8:30 a.m.: Early bird shopping. $5 ENTRY FEE at door.
8:30 a.m. to noon: Everyone shops for FREE!
11 a.m. to noon: $5 Fill-A-Bag Sale (13-gallon)

Parking is free!

U-Turn will be held June 8 at the Carlisle Fairgrounds in Building T, and we can use volunteer help from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 5-7 to help get us ready. Setup involves unloading 2 tractor-trailers of donations from Dickinson College students, staff and faculty. Volunteers sort, fold, clean and organize the items. Volunteers should wear comfortable clothes that you do not mind getting a little dirty and sweaty. The sale setup takes place in Building T and involves a lot of walking. We will be both indoors and outdoors, unloading donations off the tractor-trailers and sorting them inside the open garage-style building. It is usually pretty warm, so dress appropriately. Lunch will be provided as well as drinks. We can also use help on June 8, the day of the event.

We also might need some help with Dickinson College Campus Collection Days (on and around the Dickinson campus) from 3 to 7 p.m. Sunday, May 19, and 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, May 21.
