Student Green Team Hosting Clothing Recycling Fundraiser, Apr. 22-May 6

The Richland College Student Green Team, in partnership with the World Wear Project Green Fundraiser Program, is inviting all employees, students and the local community to donate unused clothing, shoes and other textiles. The Student Green Team will earn 12 cents per pound to help fund educational resources, project materials and supplies, field trips, team T-shirt expenses and recognition awards.

The World Wear Project clothing bin will be temporarily located in parking lot E, near the Walnut Street entrance of Richland College. Donation boxes will also be located for item drop-offs in the El Paso Hallway.

By donating your gently used shoes, clothing, purses, belts, wallets, hats, caps, backpacks, stuffed animals, toys, pots and pans, you will help divert thousands of pounds of waste from local landfills. Many of the donated items will ship globally to help businesses and disaster victims.

For questions, please contact Sonia Ford at ext. 6109 or sford@dcccd.edu.
