LETU to Host Multi-Family Garage Sale Saturday, May 22

Fri, May 21 2010

LeTourneau University will host a multi-family garage sale from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 22, at the old Skipper Dining Hall sidewalk and parking lot near the center of campus to raise funds for scholarship programs and give students a way to sell items they no longer need.
           
Various LETU departments will sell extra furniture like bookcases, desks, chairs, filing cabinets, office accessories, while university resident directors and students living in the married student housing complexes sell men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, toys, furniture, and other household items. Proceeds from the university-owned items will be used for scholarships. 
             
“We hope it will be a benefit to the students who have items they need to sell, a benefit to the public to pick up bargains, and a benefit to the university to clean out storage space and add to student scholarship funds,” said Christian A. Lehman, resident director and university sustainability coordinator.   “This is the first time we have attempted a garage sale like this, but if it is successful, it could become an annual event.”
           
The LETU campus is located at 2100 South Mobberly Ave. in Longview. The sale will take place inside the old Skipper Dining Hall building in case of inclement weather.
