UTPB Offering Students a ‘Free Store’
UTPB has a store that offers free stuff to students.
According to NewsWest 9, Rebecca Babcock is a professor and the Faculty Advisor for the Free Store at UTPB.
The store offers clothes, shoes, movies, and even food for the students and the public to take, or they can leave items for donations.
Babcock got the idea a few years back when she lived in Boston. She says they had a food co-op where they had groceries downstairs and the free store was located upstairs and people could take what they wanted and leave what they didn't need or use.
The UTPB Free Store is filled with donations and has been helping out the students and community for the past 5 years.
If you would like to donate to the store you can contact Rebecca Babcock at UTPB by calling 432-552-2304.
