HPU Donates Furniture To Goodwill Industries

08.19.2010

HIGH POINT, N.C., Aug. 19, 2010 ? High Point University recently donated a great deal of furniture to Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina, Inc.

“Four truckloads of furniture from the university were sent to Goodwill locations in Winston-Salem, Kernersville and Asheville,” says Dr. Don Scarborough, vice president for Community Relations at HPU. “The furniture is sold at very inexpensive prices, which allows people in the community who otherwise could not afford new furniture to purchase quality pieces from our campus.”

The funds that are raised from the sale of the furniture are used to help those without a job develop the skills that they need to find employment. Through workforce development programs, we help individuals develop the skills they need for today’s job market.

HPU, located in the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina, is a liberal arts institution with over 4,200 undergraduate and graduate students from 51 countries and 46 states at campuses in High Point and Winston-Salem.
