Used.ca Hands Out Supplies to Students and Offers Ideas to Help Save Money at ‘Welcome Week’ at University of Ottawa, Carleton and UPEI
UsedOttawa and UsedPEI will take part in orientation week on campus where they will be providing lots of handy stuff including pens, bags, post-it pads and t-shirts to new students. They will also be offering tips to students to help them find the things they need at very low prices or sometimes even for free by being resourceful and utilizing online classifieds.
Booths will be set up on campus where UsedEverywhere will be raffling off great student prizes found on UsedOttawa and UsedPEI.
