Saving money, helping the community, and recycling clothes to help the environment are the three main reasons the YISS PTO organizes the Uniform Consignment Sale (UCS) twice a year. The event enables parents in the YISS community to sell their gently used uniform items and buy other items at a very low price. For parents whose children quickly outgrow their clothes, this sale is a must.
The YISS PTO is pleased to provide this consignment opportunity for our parents and to see a growing interest in the sale, both in terms of buyers and consignors. The sale that took place from November 7-9, 2018 surpassed past sales by generating revenues of nearly 1.25 million won. The enthusiasm for the event is reflected in the high number of participating consignors and smiles of happy parents who find some great bargains.
UCS Co-Chairs Tarjani Atal and Mia Seo Beebar and their volunteers did a fantastic job coordinating the communications with consignors, collecting and sorting items, as well as running the actual three-day sale. YISS is grateful to have parents who are able to conduct this type of event for our school community.
