OSA holds used book sale
American University of Sharjah's (AUS) Office of Student Affairs (OSA) hosted a used book sale at the beginning of fall semester to raise funds for its charity events and activities. More than 1,000 books were offered on sale at the university's Student Center September 14-18, 2014.
More than 20 student volunteers from OSA's Community Services assisted in organizing, selling and collecting book donations. Most books on sale were donated by the student residential halls, the library and by the AUS community.
"We host the book sale at the beginning of semesters when there is a high student demand for books. This boosts the sale of books and consequently the funds needed for our charity initiatives," said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. "Through this event, we aim to instill the value of giving to our students while at the same time help them save some money on books" she added.
The event successfully generated a good amount of cash, which will be used to fund charity events in the community. Most books were sold and the remaining books will be donated to Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services for further charity use.
