Give and Go encourages students to donate instead of dispose

Posted: Apr 26, 2013

As students complete their classes and final exams, they are beginning to think about moving, too. Working with The Salvation Army and St. Vincent de Paul Society, Olivet’s Going Green ecology club is sponsoring “Give and Go.” From April 30 to May 2, students will have the opportunity to bless the local community with usable items they no longer need and aren’t planning to take with them.

Drop-off locations are:
• The Salvation Army truck in the parking lot of Olde Oak Apartments
• St. Vincent de Paul truck on the east side of Benner Library

“This is a great way to decrease waste while serving others,” said Jenny Schoenwetter ’13 (Le Roy, Ill.), business administration major and president of Going Green. “Donating items that are still in good condition is one more way to recycle. And donating decreases how much Olivet has to haul away after the students leave campus.

“We’re asking everyone to help us get the word out about these on-campus donation locations.”
