Finals and move out are a busy time for students, and we appreciate your commitment to reducing waste and improving the community!
During the week of May 6, collection bins will be stationed in five locations outside of residence halls for reusable clothing and small household item donations.
Volunteers will gather in Tamarack lounge to sort packaged food, toiletries, gently used school supplies, and electronic items. Donations go to the Arc of Multnomah County, Sunshine Pantry, and EcoBinary. Snacks and prizes will be provided!
Students and staff volunteers will also make rounds to residence halls to direct students to the appropriate donation locations.
The Arc of Multnomah County supports people with developmental disabilities to achieve a greater quality of life. The Arc accepts reusable clothing and household items. The Sunshine Pantry collects food, toiletries and school supplies for children in need. EcoBinary recycles electronic products and donated refurbished items to non-profits.
