Event Overview

A Yard Sale at the office is a great event to get everyone involved in and generate really good donations.  Invite everyone in your office's location to bring in items that would be great for resale (gently used clothes, movies, video games, artwork, books, etc.).  You'll just need an open space with tables either indoors or outdoors.  Nice to include drinks for sale as well.  This is an in-person event.
