ORONO - College may be out for the summer, but before students left for vacation, one local university asked it's students to give back to those in need.
The University of Maine held it's annual Clean Sweep sale this weekend. Items left behind by students in the residence halls, in addition to items from students moving out of nearby apartments, were donated to the sale.
Put on by the Bodwell Center for Service and Volunteerism the event aims to raise money to stock the shelves at the school's food pantry, which serves students in need.
Several students donate their time to making the Clean Sweep possible, as the Bodwell Center serves to educate students on the importance of helping others.
