UW Nordic Ski Team ‘Trash 2 Treasures’ Fundraiser Sept. 7

August 26, 2019

The University of Wyoming Nordic ski team’s annual “Trash 2 Treasures” fundraiser is Saturday, Sept. 7, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. in War Memorial Fieldhouse.

“This year, we will have a $5 ‘early bird’ admission at 8 a.m., followed at 9 a.m. with general admission and sales,” says Christi Boggs, UW Nordic ski club co-head coach.

All items are half-price at noon, and anything left over will be free at 2 p.m.

The sale will offer quality furniture and appliances for incoming and returning students, plus others, looking to furnish their homes, apartments or residence halls at an affordable cost. Team members have collected furniture throughout the summer.

The “Trash 2 Treasures” (T2T) program was founded by UW’s Nordic ski team as a way to reduce unnecessary waste and to provide quality items for sale. The environmental fundraiser is in conjunction with SNOW (Skiers Nordic of Wyoming), UW Sustainability Club, UW SLCE (Service, Leadership and Community Engagement) and the Clothing Cottage.

“T2T is a community initiative to keep furniture and appliances out of the Laramie landfill. By collecting unwanted household items, cleaning them and then storing them for the summer, hundreds of pounds of potential waste can be reused instead of added to the landfill,” Boggs says. “This provides an opportunity for individuals who care about the environment to donate items that are no longer wanted, while at the same time providing these items at a low cost to incoming and returning students, as well as members of the community.”

All proceeds help fund the team’s travels this season, including the year-end United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association national championships in Lake Placid, N.Y.
