Join us in the first ever Medina Elementary UPCycle!

Want to find a great way to both help our school AND do a bit of spring cleaning? Join us for the inaugural Medina Elementary UPCycle! 

Join us on Field Day, June 7th, where we’ll be holding the first annual all-school rummage sale, the Medina Elementary UPCycle!  Items you and your neighbors donate will be for sale immediately following the Field Day activities for families of Medina Elementary.  On Saturday, June 8th, we’ll open the rummage sale to the general public.

All proceeds raised will go towards Medina Elementary special programs, and all unsold items will be delivered to various local outreach programs.

To make it easy, we have a few volunteer dads who’ve happily agreed to pick up and deliver to the school.  If you’d like your items picked up (morning of Friday, June 7th), please send an email to  Please include your name, address and items to be picked up.  If you plan on bringing donations to school yourself on Friday morning, there will be volunteers ready to receive them.

We are looking for gently used items in good condition, such as:

  1. Furniture
  2. Working yard equipment
  3. Tools (large or small)
  4. Sporting goods
    1. Lacrosse goals, basketball hoops, balls, bikes, etc.
  5. Functional kitchenware
  6. Storage containers

If you know of any neighbors who have anything they’d like to contribute, please let them know.  This is an easy way to help one another and raise funds for our school.

We know the families of Medina Elementary are amazing at coming together in community - we look forward to seeing you at Medina Elementary UPCycle!
