Bowdoin's 2011 Give & Go Best Yet

Story posted June 21, 2011

Bowdoin’s massive Give & Go sale has done it again — proceeds from this year’s sale held June 11 topped those of previous years, taking in $50,643.

An additional $1,817 raised from the sale of books to the bookstore’s buy-back program brings the overall total to $52,460, which, after expenses such as rent and insurance, will be distributed among the 27 non-profit organizations whose volunteers helped collect, sort, clean and organize the items for sale.
