Volunteer for EcoReps GIVE-&-GO-GREEN

Summer is fast approaching, which means it's time to start thinking about moving out and GIVE-&-GO-GREEN!  For those of you who don't know about GIVE-&-GO-GREEN, it is an initiative organized by the Barnard EcoReps that seeks to reduce the amount of waste thrown away by students at the end of the school year.  Every year, we throw out perfectly useful clothes, appliances, books, toiletries, and more because we simply can't keep them over the summer.

Instead of giving all of that to the landfill, give it to someone in need!  Barnard will collect what you don't want or can't take home and donate it to great local organizations.  Each year we fill up multiple trucks with donations!

The Barnard EcoReps are looking for students who can commit to staying late to help organize this years GIVE-&-GO-GREEN initiative.

Accepted volunteers will be eligible for a FREE HOUSING EXTENSION through Friday, May 18th at 12noon (please note that some students may need to relocate to a different residence hall).  Volunteers will be responsible for keeping donation stations orderly in shifts from May 4th through May 18th, and must commit to being present on May 11th, May 12th, and May 17th.  Additionally, they must also be present for the night of donation organization on May 16th and a full day of work on May 17th, when the donations are collected and loaded into trucks.

If you are interested in volunteering, please e-mail us at ecoreps@barnard.edu with your name, UNI, class year, and current room assignment.

Thank you, The Barnard Ecoreps (http://barnardecoreps.wordpress.com/)
