SOMERVILLE, NJ -- Immaculata High School's Campus Ministry Garage Sale has become a springtime ritual for Somerset County residents each May.

This sale opened on Friday and continues from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 12, at 240 Mountain Ave., Somerville.

A massive display of bicycles, outdoor equipment, furniture, clothing, luggage, toys, household items, jewelry, and electronics will fill the cafeteria and gym.

Campus Ministry Director and Garage Sale chairperson Maureen Cote has the support of the entire Immaculata community as parents, teachers, religious, alumni and nearly all of the students pitch in to help.

In addition, a core group of alumni parents, who have worked the garage sale for 15 years, as well as the staff of Campus Ministry, most notably Rich Grieshaber, working with the volunteers, transform the cafeteria and gym into a super marketplace of gently used items at reasonable prices.

They do all of this in less than 36 hours and by Saturday evening they have transformed the area, ready for school on Monday.

All merchandise is donated by the Immaculata community, as well as the Somerset County community.

Proceeds from this major fundraiser help support Campus Ministry's enormous service outreach program, most of which is based in Somerset County. The Campus Ministry student volunteers devote countless hours to help the local poor, elderly, disadvantaged, and the environment.

The impact of this service to the community is palpable and it fosters a lifelong commitment in these young people to always help the needy.
