We sincerely thank members of our community for their ongoing support. Our patrons continue every year to supply us with donations of books in excellent condition and variety. Our members volunteer their time during the three days prior to the sale with the major task of sorting and organizing the donations such that our shoppers can enjoy an appealing and well organized venue. Our CFUW members are in full force  on the sale day itself to assist shoppers.  At our sale you will find music, movies, games, puzzles and books sorted into groups such as mystery, romance, novels, science fiction, children’s books, classics, pets, crafts and hobbies, health, cookbooks, dictionaries, biography, royalty, politics, Canadiana, self-help, sports and many more.

As of 2017, this charity is managed under the umbrella of the Niagara Community Foundation. In 2008 we partnered with Brock University endowment fund to establish a bursary of approximately $2,000 each year for a mature female student who is returning to school at Brock.
