Garage Giveaway


Our annual Garage Giveaway is always a big event!

Pittsburgh residents give furniture and household items to newly arrived international students and scholars as a way of saying, “Welcome to Pittsburgh!”


Who: this event is only for newly arrived international students and visiting scholars.


When: this year the Garage Giveaway will be held on August 19, 2017. Entrance to the Garage Giveaway will be by lottery numbers, which will be distributed to students starting at 8:30 AM. Entrance will start at 9 AM. Admission by lottery number means that you do not need to get to the church way in advance, because when you go in is based on what number you get, not by what time you came to the church. Even if you get a higher number there will be an abundance of items for everyone.


What: you will receive free household items such as tables and chairs. Everyone will be able to get some small items.


Where: Bellefield Presbyterian Church, 4001 Fifth Avenue in Oakland


We hope this event will help you get settled into your life in Pittsburgh.

We are happy you are here!
