Clean out your closets, basements and boxes, all for a good cause. From Monday, May 9, to Friday, May 13, Don’t Dump, Donate is an initiative hosted by the Office of Residence Life in tandem with the Community Caring Council of Cape Girardeau. All residence halls, including the Towers Complex, have collection areas ready to receive items that students, faculty and staff may wish to donate. All items donated will be sold by the Community Caring Council in a large garage sale at 232 Broadway in Cape Girardeau from noon to 6 p.m. on May 19 and 8 a.m. to noon on May 20, which is open to anyone who likes a good deal. The proceeds of this garage sale go towards helping Cape Girardeau’s neediest citizens, making giving back to your community easier than ever. Any item is welcome for donation, including non-perishable foods, clothing, furniture, electronics, books and shoes. Please direct any questions to Chris Miller, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for giving back.
