According to Dupaco Community Credit Union President and CEO Joe Hearn, to participate in the Community-Wide Garage Sale event is to help promote thrift and reduce environmental impact.
“The Community-Wide Garage Sale weekend presents a great opportunity for positive social interaction among residents, which both the buyer and seller benefit from financially,” said Hearn. “What makes this event a great fit for Dupaco is its community connection and emphasis on thrift, which is a core principal of the credit union.”
