2009 Trash to Treasure 003

At 6:45 a.m. on Saturday, May 30, 45 minutes before the opening of Penn State's annual Trash to Treasure sale, the queue of shoppers, starting at Beaver Stadium's Gate C, had almost wound its way to Gate B, nearly one-fifth of the way around the facility. The line reached several thousand by the official opening at 7:30 a.m. Penn State's Housing Office and Office of Physical Plant have held the event each year for eight years straight, averaging $50,000 in sales to benefit the Centre County United Way. Items for sale have all been donated, primarily from students living on campus, and totaled 63.4 tons this year.
