Spring Cleaning with a Meaning
When the last paper has been submitted and finals wrap at the end of Homewood campus's spring semester, students vacate their rooms and set their sights on summer. Before they completely check out there is the dreaded and often-wasteful task of moving, but thanks to collaborative partnerships, move-out grows more and more sustainable each year.
Goodwill trucks were set-up immediately outside residence halls throughout move-out to accept clothing, shoes, and housewares donations. Food and toiletries were collected in bins set up in the lobbies and donated to Project PLASE, a Baltimore based non-profit serving individuals through transitional and permanent housing programs.
Thousands of pounds of valuable goods were donated to local non-profits in need rather than sent to the incinerator. We're proud of our Homewood students for their commitment to give back sustainably and responsibly.
