Garage Sale Planned Saturday to Benefit Tech Trek
The Weatherford branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) is hosting a multi-family garage sale this Saturday, June 1, at 1329 N. Terrace Drive in Weatherford to raise funds for Tech Trek, an upcoming summer camp for eighth grade girls.
The garage sale featuring a large selection of items begins at 7 a.m. and will end at 1 p.m. Everyone is invited.
Tech Trek is a week-long STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) camp designed to create interest, excitement and self-confidence in young women entering the eighth grade. Members of the Weatherford AAUW are conducting the camp for the first time this summer in coordination with Southwestern Oklahoma State University. Thirty girls from across the state of Oklahoma have been selected to participate. More information about the camp can be found at: http://www.swosu.edu/biology/tech-trek/index.asp
The AAUW is also seeking donated items, which can be dropped off at the above address starting this Thursday, May 30. In addition, AAUW will accept tax-deductible monetary and in-kind donations to the camp via the SWOSU Foundation. For more information, contact Lori Gwyn at 580.02.3815.
