WABI previews Clean Sweep Sale

WABI (Channel 5) previewed the annual Clean Sweep Sale at the University of Maine, scheduled for 11 a.m.–5 p.m. May 24 and 8 a.m.–1 p.m. May 25 this year. The sale will be held in Alfond Arena, and proceeds will benefit the on-campus food pantry and student volunteer projects through the Bodwell Center for Service and Volunteerism. “I know our clothes are very, very popular,” said Lisa Morin, coordinator for the Bodwell Center. “Our students leave behind a lot of brand names and clothes with tags still on them. They are good shoppers, some of them. I think a lot of people come in looking for future students. People that are going to be going to college from the local community in the fall and they want to get things from their own residence halls. They are always looking for whatever furniture items we might have and there’s always something new and bizarre.”
