gardeners who make our souls blossom." --Marcel Proust
Program encourages sustainable move-out days
With finals completed Thursday, UWRF student Mauricio Lozada carries his futon mattress to his waiting car after finishing up his junior year at UW-River Falls. During move-out, the 9th
annual "Don't Throw It, Donate It" residence hall collection is underway. The program encourages students to donate clothing, miscellaneous items and nonperishable food as they move out of the halls for the year. Donations are then given to Treasures of the
Heart, Second Chances and the River Falls Food Pantry. Sponsored by the Leadership Development and Service Committee, Residence Life and the Friends of Big Brothers, Big Sisters Student Organization, the program is designed to give students the opportunity
to give back to the community and be sustainable in lieu of throwing items into the dumpster. Photo
