2009 Trash to Treasure sale a success

May 31, 2009

Thousands of shoppers spent more than $60,000 Saturday, May 30, at the 2009 Trash to Treasure Sale, held under Beaver Stadium on Penn State's University Park campus. 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, raises money for the Centre County United Way while at the same time saving the goods from ending up in a landfill. The Penn State Housing Office, Office of Physical Plant and the Centre County United Way jointly coordinate the event. For photos, visit http://live.psu.edu/stilllife/2079 online.
