WVU and the United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties are asking faculty, staff, and students to think before they toss and give it up for good!
Beginning May 1, students and employees may begin dropping off their gently used items they wish to donate to the Blue & Gold Mine Sale. Collection boxes have been placed in each residence hall in addition to four outdoor donation stations around Morgantown – Chateau Royale, the top of Falling Run Road, Seneca Center, and Grant Street. Items may also be dropped off directly to the East Concourse of Milan Puskar Stadium Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Items like furniture, home décor, kitchenware, clothing and electronics are welcome, however mattresses, box springs, and televisions will not be accepted. For complete details, please visit bluegoldmine.wvu.edu/donations.
The 13th annual Blue & Gold Mine Sale will be held at the East Concourse of the Milan Puskar Stadium on Sat., May 13 from 7 a.m. to noon.

The Early bird admission is $5 (7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.) and free admission will begin at 8:30 a.m. Shoppers will have the option of purchasing a custom reusable bag to fit as many items as the bag will hold for one flat rate of $20.
