Alfred University students’ ‘dumped’ items will be sold for benefit of local charities

As the spring semester came to a close, students throughout Alfred University were encouraged to “dump” their usable items in designated areas before they “ran” off to family and summer jobs. These items will be sold for a charitable cause at the annual “Dump ‘n’ Run,” Friday, June 4, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Davis Gym on the AU campus.

The AU Support Staff Council, AU Pride, and GreenAlfred are sponsoring the 2010 “Dump ‘n’ Run.

Items that do not sell will be donated to charities for distribution to families in need. Non-perishable food items will be given to local food pantries.

All proceeds from the sale will be shared first with organizations which help with the collection and sale, and then with other charitable organizations.

For additional information, please contact Nancy Freelove, “Dump ‘n’ Run” coordinator and chairman of the AU Support Staff Council, at 607.871.2562.
