College Student “Junk” Turned to Treasure

Donate don’t dump is the motivation behind a dorm sale held on Saint Scholastica’s campus.

Usable items former students threw away this spring were dug out of the dumpster, refurbished, cleaned and up for sale.

Proceeds will be donated to Habitat for Humanity.

“This whole thing is a sustainability issue really,” CSS biology instructor Jane Wattrus said. “We’re recycling items that would end up in the landfill. People are saving money by not driving to Target and driving back.”

Items that are not sold will be donated to Goodwill.
