"Donate, don't dump" student move-out day at Lewis & Clark College

301 views 4 weeks ago
Three days before commencement, Lewis & Clark students donated hundreds of reusable items they would have otherwise thrown out.

Volunteers gathered in Tamarack lounge—the designated "stop and swap" location for clothes, furniture, packaged food, toiletries, gently used school supplies, and electronic items.

Student and staff volunteers also scanned residence halls throughout the day for donations and directed students to the appropriate donation locations.

Collection bins were stationed in five locations outside of residence halls for reusable clothing and small household item donations for nonprofits including: the Arc of Multnomah County, Sunshine Pantry, and EcoBinary.

Volunteers diverted more than 2,000 pounds of reusable goods.

Finals and move out are a busy time for students, and we appreciate the commitment to reducing waste and improving the community!
