Our First Annual "World Lemur Day Rummage Sale"
Sunday, October 23rd, Pomeroy Center, 2-7 pm
AAZKSF celebrated World Lemur Day at the first annual "World Lemur Day Rummage Sale." Our chapter co-hosted this fantastic event along with our very own lemur specialist and our neighbors at the Pomeroy Center.
We collected donations of gently used clothing and accessories, toys, electronics, small furniture pieces, books, CDs/DVDs, and more.* Proceeds from our rummage sale benefit the conservation organization Lemur Love whose mission is to "protect lemurs, empower women, and further science."
Our vision for this event is to uphold our sustainability initiative by reusing and recycling unwanted items, support our local community with reasonably priced second-hand treasures, fundraise for lemurs, and assist in building local capacity for future conservation in Madagascar.
