‘Don’t Dump, Donate’ at Southeast Residence Halls Through May 10


“Don’t Dump, Donate,” a joint initiative between the Office of Residence Life and the Community Caring Council of Cape Girardeau, will be held through May 10 in collection areas in all residence halls, including on the first floor of the Towers Complex.

As students begin to clean out their rooms before going home for summer break, faculty and staff are also encouraged to donate items no longer needed, wanted or for which they simply do not have room. Any item is welcome for donation, including non-perishable foods, clothing, shoes, furniture, electronics, appliances, bedding, household goods, craft supplies, books and games.

All items donated will be sold by the Community Caring Council at its annual garage sale May 17 at 232 Broadway in Cape Girardeau. The proceeds of this garage sale go to support those in need of assistance with housing, transportation, medical and dental services and counseling.

The Community Caring Council is a nonprofit organization which promotes coordination and collaboration between community groups to empower individuals and families to become self-reliant and responsible. For more information, visit www.communitycaringcouncil.org/.
