Your spring cleaning can support Nia House.

As you clean through your closets, under your bed, and into your garage this Spring, think of Nia House. 

Nia House's Spring Fun Raising Yard Sale is on Saturday, May 6th.

Nia House will happily accept your household donations from clothing, toys, furniture, and equipment.

Donations should be bagged in plastic bags (in case it should rain) and stored in area through the fence to the right of the preschool Quiet Area. More sizable and costly donations will be advertised in advance on Craiglist. We will begin accepting donations in April and will let you know weekend drop off hours too. 

Rachel Newman (Stella’s mom) will coordinate this effort. Please email yardsale@niahouse.org with a picture and description of the items by April 28, 2017. 

Thank you for your support of this fun for the whole family event.

The Fun was Raised!

A quick and huge- Thank you!!!! to the Nia House community for all the hard work and good energy put into Saturday’s Yard Sale. The day was, indeed, a fun raiser.

The event was smashing. There was much bouncing, BBQ, beer, and bargains! Our yard adorned with your stuff staged impromptu dress-up and raked in nearly $4,000.

Thank you to our many donors. We are grateful for the investment the community at large makes in early childhood education through Nia House.
