Student’s in Free Enterprise (SIFE) Okanagan and the Regional District Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) are hosting a one day only “Trunk Sale” on Saturday, April 28. The event will take place at Okanagan College in Penticton from 8 a.m. to noon.
A trunk sale allows local residents to sell unwanted items out the back of their car or truck. These giant yard sales, called “car boot sales” in England and Australia, are becoming increasingly popular across North America. The event will feature information on where to take unwanted items for safe disposal and recycling.
Everyone is asked to bring donations for the food bank as part of SIFE’s “Campbell’s Let’s Can Hunger”. Ryan Ruybal is going into second year business at Okanagan College and is a coordinator of the event. For him a Trunk Sale is a great SIFE event.
“SIFE seeks projects that promote good business practices while helping the community,” explains Ruybal. “We are excited to help start this event in Penticton. It will clean up homes, promote reuse of valuable materials and provide a way for people to make a little money. We hope to work with the RDOS to make this an annual event.”
