$25, 593.45 raised at ACT's 18th annual BIG Sale !!
The 18th annual BIG Sale was filled with BIG deals, BIG crowds, and one BIG broken record: $25,593.45 was raised to support energy efficiency projects for local community partners (list below) & an App scholarship! This amazing program would not be possible without our tireless volunteers (100+ today, as well as hundreds more from the Don’t Throw it Away collections) who started the day at 6am, loyal customers (1,000+) who braved the less-than-stellar weather, supportive department & university partners (Engagement & Leadership, University Housing, Physical Plant, & Sustainability), and even more community partners who helped ACT divert the final BIG Sale leftovers from landfills, including Goodwill (clothes, frames, & decor), App State Free Store (school supplies, electronics, & water bottles), and Hospitality House (plates, cups, silverware, towels, sheets, and comforters). Thank you and congrats to all involved in this win-win-win (earth-community-students) program not only today but for the last 18 years!
Funds from the 2018 BIG Sale will benefit Hospitality House of Boone, The Watauga Humane Society, and Horse Helpers of the High Country by providing grants to improve the energy efficiency of their facilities and operations. Proceeds will also support scholarships for ASU students.
A green program from start to finish, coordinated by our very own Mountaineers!
