VANOC is offering up office supplies and furniture from the athletes’ village while lost & found items include anything from red mittens to cell phones, umbrellas, jackets, and hoodies. All proceeds from the sale will support families through the Network of Inner City Community Services Society.

The Province also reports that the Olympic street banners will be sold in the coming weeks:

“Proceeds will support a workshop called the Fab Shop, at 1220 E. 2nd Ave., formerly the Vancouver 2010 fabrication shop, designed to provide training and work experience to people from the Downtown Eastside. The City of Vancouver has donated the 1,600 banners, a number of which will be signed by VANOC head John Furlong.”

The sale runs Monday through Saturday, 11:00am to 6:00pm daily at 875 East Hastings.

    I don’t understand why they chose these inconvenient opening hours, during working hours, except for the last day, Sat.

  2. Greg says:

    I don’t understand why Luc thinks people should work at hours only convenient to him.

  3. A says:

    Its less VANOC doing this now then it is NICCSS (a great bunch of people) working hard to make this happen. This is an awesome cause and I hope alot of people support it.
