UVic surplus goes to charity

When the university decides to do some early spring cleaning, local charities benefit. On March 2, UVic provided several bookshelves, desks, cabinets, TVs and tables plus over 700 new and 1,200 used surplus fitted sheets to the Salvation Army.UVic has a limited capacity to store surplus items, and when demand exceeds capacity, UVic contacts an appropriate charity. Recently, Habitat for Humanity picked up surplus construction materials, and other surplus items have been given to a wide variety of charitable organizations, including the St. John Ambulance, Royal Jubilee Hospital School of Nursing Archive, Girl Guides of Canada and the St&o#180;:lō Nation.
