“give your stuff away”
Nation-wide give-away event (Curb Day) is Saturday, May 16, 2009

On Saturday, May 16, 2009, people all over will participate in “Curb Day” by bringing unwanted (but still valuable) items to their curbs for others to cart away for free.

All of us own extra “stuff” – things that have value, but not to us. Overall, there are millions of items out there – good stuff, just wasting away, cluttering households. In today’s economy, especially, many others would love to own these items.

On May 16 (or the night of the 15th), please bring your unwanted valuables to your curb for others to pick up. And if you need something, take a walk in your neighborhood – you might just find it for free.

Please use good sense. Do not donate weapons of any kind. No chemicals and nothing dangerous at all. Nothing illegal either. No food or alcohol, please.

Do NOT put garbage out on Curb Day. If you’re not sure if something is valuable or truly junk, ask for some opinions, or don’t put it out.

Finally, drive carefully that weekend. Be alert for vehicles stopping quickly. Stay in the left lane if you’re not stopping.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Mike Morone at, (585) 749-5107.
