TRASH TO TREASURE OPEN HOUSES

(July 2, 2013) DU's furniture share program is changing; stay tuned to your DU Digest for more information. In the meantime, help clean out the E3 storage facility before it gets demolished to make way for the new Daniel Felix Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science building.

We'll be clearing out the building on the following days (or until it's all gone), so come on down to check out office furniture, desks, filing cabinets, tables and much more. We will not be accepting new items and you will be responsible for transporting the items back to their new home or arranging for a moving service.

  • Monday, July 8, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
  • Friday, July 19, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
  • Monday, July 22, 3-5 p.m.
  • Friday, Aug. 2, 3-5 p.m.
  • Monday, Aug. 5, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

The E3 storage facility is located on E. liff Ave. and York St. on the south side of the Newman Center. Questions? Email Mariah.Shell@du.edu.
