For Smaldore, the event represents what could be the start of a new East tradition.

“[The yard sale could] start a tradition that could be as popular as the other East events” [we are] are hoping that more people come out and [will] raise awareness for [East and Habitat for Humanity],” said Smaldore.

In regards to spreading the word, students and faculty are having trouble informing communities outside of East.
