For more than half a century, “spring cleaning” has had a tremendous impact on students of the Wheeler School and the entire East Side community. The Famous Wheeler Clothing and More Sale is making its yearly return to the Wheeler gymnasium for its 69th year from April 6-8. The “annual and epic phenomenon” is a chance for households to donate gently used (or new) clothing, household items and much more for bargain lovers all through Rhode Island and the greater area to score the deal of a lifetime at this part flea market, part yard sale. The “pop-up” department store, sponsored and run by the Wheeler School Parents Association, brings in eager buyers from all over the region with its great deals on a massive amount of like-new, quality apparel, and the enormous sale brings parents, current students, alumni and other volunteers alike to serve countless hours by organizing and selling the donated items.
While proceeds directly support the Wheeler School, Head of School Dan Miller believes that the larger goal is met through community outreach and the preservation of a nearly 70-year tradition. Whether you’re looking to clean out your closet or on the hunt for some special treasure, the Wheeler Clothing and More Sale is the place to be for all your spring cleaning needs.
