The popular University of Wyoming Nordic ski team’s annual “Trash 2 Treasures” (T2T) fundraiser for the campus and Laramie communities is back again this month.
The team’s “biggest garage sale of the year” fundraiser is from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, at the Summit View Parking Lot east of War Memorial Stadium, located on the corner of 22nd Street and Willett Drive.
The sale will offer quality furniture and appliances for incoming and returning students, and others looking to furnish their homes, apartments or residence halls at an affordable cost. Many other “treasures” will be available. UW Nordic ski team members have collected items throughout the summer.
“Select items will be sold for 50 percent off at 1 p.m.,” says Christi Boggs, co-head coach with Rachel Watson. “And, at 2 p.m., many items will be available by donation until we have them packed away.”
As a way to reduce unnecessary waste and to provide quality items for sale, UW’s Nordic ski team founded the T2T program in 2013. The environmental fundraiser is in conjunction with SNOW (Skiers Nordic of Wyoming), the UW Sustainability Club, UW SLCE (Service, Leadership and Community Engagement) and The Cottage at St. Matthew’s.
All proceeds help fund the team’s travels this season, including to the United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association national championships next March at the Winter Olympics venue in Lake Placid, N.Y.
