Winter 'Trash to Treasure' Sale Held Saturday
The Penn State Student United Way will host a "Trash to Treasure" sale Saturday, Feb. 1 from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. The sale will be held in rooms 106, 109 and 110 at Fisher Hall in the East Residence Halls.
Students donated all items for sale as they cleaned out their dorms and apartments before winter break. Items include, but are not limited to: clothing, bedding, shoes, coats, home décor, fans, books, computer monitors, appliances and storage containers.
The winter sale's theme will be "Tote It Away," which plays on the fact that shoppers will be able to fill a provided grocery bag and purchase what's inside for a flat rate. Larger items will be sold through negotiation.
Zulaikha Ismadi, treasurer coordinator of the sale, has been working toward putting it together since the beginning of fall semester. As Saturday nears, she is hoping to spread the word and requested help from fellow students.
All proceeds of the sale go to the Centre County United Way, and any food donated will be sent to the State College Area Food Bank.
