Rummage sale at RTC to benefit emergency fund
November 16, 2012 · 10:50 AM
Renton Technical College will hold their fifth annual Rummage Sale this Saturday, Nov. 17.
The sale will be on from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., on campus in Cafeteria Building I, 3000 NE Fourth St. in Renton.
Clothing, housewares, gently-used furniture and many more items will be available.
The Rummage Sale is hosted by the Renton Technical College Foundation and the Administrative Office Management Students Class of 2013.
Proceeds from the sale will benefit the Renton Technical College Student Emergency Fund.
The fund helps students who need short term, one time assistance with bills in order to stay in school. The money is applied directly to costs like utility bills.
“The Renton Technical College Foundation knows that many of our students are just one accident or late bill away from not being able to complete their education and get the training they need for a great job,” wrote Susanna Williams, college relations director in an email. “The Student Emergency Fund gives our students a necessary bridge in times of need.”
