PennMOVES held its annual community sale June 5, during which the service group sold students’ donated items at a low cost. Proceeds went to organizations identified by the United Way of Southeastern Pennsylvania, a volunteer-based community service group.

Among the estimated 3,000 attendees, the sale’s most popular items were clothing, refrigerators, lamps and microwaves, said Business Services Spokeswoman Barbara Lea-Kruger.

PennMOVES is still calculating the total proceeds from this year’s sale. At the sale last year, Penn saved 90,0000 pounds of waste and raised $30,000, according to Business Services Vice President Marie Witt.

“We are very pleased that PennMOVES’ efforts were once again quite successful thanks to the strong support from students who donated items,” Witt said in a statement.

The sale, which was held at the Class of 1923 Ice Rink, lasted from 8 a.m to 6 p.m. Unsold items were donated to Goodwill.
