Students Gearing Up for Winter Trash to Treasure Sale

Students Gearing Up for Winter Trash to Treasure Sale

State College, PA (January 24, 2013) - Are you missing the summer yard sales? Do you need some affordable retail therapy to get you through the dark days of winter?

The Penn State Student United Way has the answers you are looking for... the 2013 Winter Trash to Treasure Sale!

An off-shoot of the larger Trash to Treasure sale held in the spring, the winter sale is a Student United Way project that offers the same great deals. The student group is responsible for sorting and staffing the Winter Trash to Treasure Sale Room. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, February 2, 2013 from 10am – 2pm in 106 Fisher Hall on the Penn State campus. Parking is available in the East Parking deck on Bigler Road.

Students leaving the area in December donate items they do not want to take with them to the sale. Items available include clothing, TV’s, shoes, computers, rugs, household items and more. Donated food is given to the area food banks.

“Each year the sale continues to grow,” stated Trash to Treasure student coordinator, Emily Powell. “This year we have over 10 tons of donations to sort and prepare for sale day. It is a lot of work and we need as much help as we can get. Knowing the money we raise is going to help people in Centre County makes it worth our time and effort.” If you are interested in volunteering to help set up for the sale please contact Emily at This email address is being protected from spambots.

All of the proceeds from the winter sale benefit the 37 Centre County United Way partner agencies. For more information visit: or
