Old dorm furniture to have new life

Release Date:  Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Charleston, W.Va.  - The University of Charleston Enactus team (formerly known as SIFE) will be holding a yard sale Saturday, April 26th at the parking garage on the University of Charleston campus.

At the end of the college school year, furniture and accessories from dorms and apartments are often left for trash as students move out, causing many usable items to end up in the landfill. To mitigate the environmental impact of this end of the year move, the University of Charleston Enactus team will collect “gently used” items for the yard sale. Other items will also be available.

The sale will take place from 9:00am – 1:00pm. In case of rain, the sale will take place inside the parking garage.

Enactus is an international non-profit organization working to bring together business leaders of today and tomorrow by encouraging students to make a difference in their communities while developing leadership skills. Enactus at the University of Charleston actively works to fulfill these goals through educational and outreach programs, often created to improve quality of life and standard of living for people in need.
