Dear LC community members,

As CAS students prepare to leave campus this year, options to donate reusable items are now available.

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 are needed on May 9 and 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., in Tamarack lounge, to sort packaged food, toiletries, gently used school supplies, and electronic items. Donations go to the Arc of Multnomah CountySunshine 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.

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

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.

Thank you,

The Lewis & Clark Sustainability Council
