Clothesline/Used Book Sale

The Clothesline Sale is made possible by donations from Sewickley Academy families, alumni, and the surrounding communities. It is staffed entirely by volunteers, who generously offer their time - over 3,000 hours - and resources during the month of September to transform the Snyder Gym into a giant used clothing sale.

The sale is a fundraiser for the Academy and also a great resource to residents of our local communities.

In the community, the Clothesline Sale made donations to:
  • the Cranberry Presbyterian Church, Center For Hope in Ambridge, and over 100 bags of clothing to a charity of our choice
  • the Reach Out and Read Program, to restock book shelves in local family health center playrooms
  • Hugs for Heroes to support an SA Early Childhood project (books)
  • our Senior School students to support some of their projects (clothing)
  • young men in African villages (clothing)

For Sewickley Academy, the Clothesline and Used Book Sale raised over $92,700 in September 2015 that is enabling us to fund:
  • Construction of the Maker Space/Innovation Lab
  • Equipment for the science department to allow our school telescope to be transportable and provide outdoor classroom and observation experiences
  • $50,000 donation to the construction of the new Events Center and be part of supporting this milestone in our school’s history
  • Grants for Innovative Frameworks in Teaching (G.I.F.T. Program) to support our teachers in capturing opportunities for innovative and interdisciplinary projects that come up throughout the school year
