End of Spring Semester Collections

Starting with the Spring 2009 Semester, the Campus Sustainability Advisory Committee (CSAC) with support from the Housing and Residential Life Office sponsored a collection of clothing, shoes, and food.  Students preparing to move back home for the summer usually have many items they don't want to take with them.  Instead of just throwing these things into the garbage, CSAC thought it would benefit others if those items became donations instead of garbage.

To date, the following amounts were collected:

During Closing Week of 2009, 3,500 pounds of clothing and shoes and 6,000 pounds of food were collected.

During Closing Week of 2010, 1,380 pounds of clothing and shoes and 6,500 pounds of food were collected.

During Closing Week of 2011, 2,228 pounds of clothing and shoes were collected.

During Closing Week of 2012, 3,575 pounds of clothing and shoes were collected.

During Closing Week of 2013, 2,739 pounds of clothing and shoes and 800 pounds of food were collected.
