UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Everything two for a dollar, at UNCG Cram & Scram May 31

Now these items will be for sale, in the annual Cram and Scram Rummage Sale.

It will be held in the UNCG Elliott University Center Cone Ballroom on Saturday, May 31, starting at 8 a.m. “Most of the really good items go first,” says Ben Kunka, director of UNCG Office of Waste Reduction and Recycling.

All items will be 50 cents each, cash only.

The 50-cent price is not designed to bring in large amounts of revenue, Kunka explains, but instead to encourage community members to reuse these items that still have lots of life left in them. The sale is open to the public. There will be free parking at the Walker Ave. Parking Deck.

The money generated at the sale funds environmental learning opportunities on campus. The leftover items are reused through Bee-Thrifty Thrift Store on Market St. Any non-perishable food collected as students leave is not sold at the sale but instead donated to Greensboro Urban Ministry.

In the weeks before the sale, a Boy Scout troop will volunteer time to help Kunka sort the items into basic categories. That will make an easier shopping experience for the customers lined up on May 31.

Happy shopping.
