The Office of Physical Plant, in cooperation with Housing and Food Services and Residence Life, collected 50 tons of student-donated items to be sold at this Saturday's Trash to Treasure sale on the University Park campus. The sale will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 25, in the Ag Arena. All proceeds will be donated to the Centre County United Way.

Donations include clothing, carpets, toys,athletic equipment, computers, printers, fans, light fixtures and more. All will be offered at bargain-basement prices. Those purchasing carpets may have them shampooed by sale volunteers for a small donation.

"The new program will get usable items out of the refuse pile and into the hands of those that can use them," said Al Matyasovsky, supervisor of central support services in the Office of Physical Plant.
