Give and Go: Moveout 2014

This year Pacific Lutheran University has partnered with Keep America Beautiful, College and University’s Recycling Coalition (CURC), and Goodwill Industries to pilot the Give and Go program. PLU is the first school in the Cascade Region to partner on this project, following a very successful program roll out last year on the east coast.

During moveout this year you will see a few changes on campus. We will have three additional attended Goodwill donation centers on campus and one less bulk dumpster. Please bring furniture, clothes, and large household items to these locations. Similar to previous years we will also have small item donation collection in each residence hall lobby for clothes, shoes, and small household electronics. Additionally there will be collection boxes for any unopened non-perishable foods and ANY toiletries (even if they are half empty). The food is donated to Trinity Lutheran Church’s Food Bank. The toiletries go to Nativity House where they will be distributed to homeless shelters and those most in need. Finally, there will also be collection bins for dishes from the Dining Hall.
