Nearly 140 volunteers collected and arranged more than 27 tons of donated furniture, kitchenware, clothing, books, electronics, bikes, food, appliances, sports gear, and other goods for this year’s GIVE sale. For the past 27 years, the Isla Vista project has resold left-behind items as students moved out at the school year’s end. The open-air thrift market, held last weekend in the Embarcadero Hall parking lot, raised more than $27,000 for nearby causes, including the Isla Vista Elementary School Science Camp Scholarship Fund and the Santa Barbara Student Housing Co-op, among many others. Associated Students Food Bank received more than 1,600 pounds of unopened food.
