Give & Go Green results

Give & Go Green was a HUGE SUCCESS!  Students, administrators and faculty members donated clothing, food, household goods, etc. to the collection centers located in the residence halls.  Here's a summary of what was collected:
  • 3 full 17' moving trucks of items donated to the Salvation Army
  • 1 pickup truck full of food donated to the church soup kitchen on 114th & Broadway
  • 15,000 plastic bags to be recycled via Fairway grocery store
The EcoReps worked hard to coordinate and facilitate this extraordinary program.  A special thanks to EcoReps Kirsten Scheu and Aja Hazelhoff for taking the lead on this program.  This was a great cause that enabled us to help the community while further reducing the College's carbon footprint.
