Students and community members all over Castro Valley will be able to purchase a variety of items for themselves at Castro Valley High’s first rummage sale on April 20. This sale was put together by Leadership teacher Nick “Dubb” Whitaker his leadership students.
Earlier in the year, Whitaker took his students on a field trip to visit Los Lomas High School’s leadership class. There, they discovered that the school had an event where people donated used items and sold them to earn money for the school. Knowing that the funds at CVHS had been reduced, Whitaker thought this event would be a great fundraiser event to incorporate into our school.
“We’re having people drop off anything from clothes to furniture. All the proceeds will be going to ASB to help fund dances, Days of Diversity, prom, and more,” explained Whitaker.
The students will be in charge of pricing the items and the sale will be held in the courtyard and the school gym. The leadership class is hoping to make this an annual event to not only to raise money for the school, but to also get people together as a community. They are optimistic about their debut rummage sale and plan to expand it in the future.
