Inaugural Husky Exchange Program a Success
The first ever Husky Exchange Program collected over 3,000 items from students moving out of the residence halls this spring. Donations included nonperishable food, various electronics, clothing, pool noodles (head protectors for the lofted beds!) and small appliances.
In addition to reducing over 2,000 pounds of waste from the landfill, more than 1,000 of these items have already been donated to local food pantries and charities. The remaining items will be donated or sold at a reduced cost to students moving into the residence halls in August. Any funds raised will be used to seed a student “green fund” that will be used to promote future student-led sustainability efforts on campus.
A special thanks to the more than 20 volunteers who made this possible.
