Keep America Beautiful, Goodwill, and Creighton's IRHG and Sustainability Council have teamed up to collect unwanted items from the residence halls during move-out.
These efforts keep materials out of the landfill and create jobs through Goodwill Industries.
All items will be picked up by Goodwill Industries here in Omaha. From their website: "Goodwill Industries, Inc., Serving Eastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa, has been a leader in helping people fulfill their dreams through work since 1933. We train and employ people with disabilities and others who may be at a competitive disadvantage in the job market, such as at-risk youth." Sales of donated goods help fund the many programs offered by Goodwill.
Goodwill changes lives and strengthens communities through education, training and work.
Non-perishable food, toiletries, and detergents will be donated to Siena-Francis House or Together, Inc.
