2009 Trash to Treasure 001

2009 Trash to Treasure 001

Several hundred "early bird" shoppers are greeted by a pleasant morning on Saturday, May 30, as they wait for the opening of the 2009 Trash to Treasure Sale, held under Beaver Stadium. Shoppers had the opportunity to purchase thousands of items donated primarily by students -- 63.4 tons in total -- during the spring 2009 semester. The event, in its eighth year, brought in more than $60,000 this year for the Centre County United Way, while saving the goods from being thrown away. The Penn State Housing Office, Office of Physical Plant and the Centre County United Way jointly coordinate the event.
