The week of May 4th-9th marked the official end of the school year at Northern Kentucky University and also, signaled the start of “Move-Out Week.” This year’s move-out was made a little easier for students because of the availability of conveniently located Goodwill donation trailers on the campus.
This Spring, for the first time, Ohio Valley Goodwill partnered with Northern Kentucky University for “Move Out Week” which offered students the opportunity to donate unwanted items like clothing, furniture and electronics to support the organization as well as to recycle responsibly. Annually, Ohio Valley Goodwill recycles more than 45,000,000 lbs. of donated goods and diverts them from area landfills. Goodwill was recognized by Hamilton County Recycling last year for its excellence in reuse and recycling efforts. NKU students were urged to donate and to help preserve the planet at the same time.
“For almost 100 years, Ohio Valley Goodwill has been a leader in the Greater Cincinnati community in helping people with disabilities and our nation’s veterans to go to work as well as in its efforts to help preserve the planet,” said Joe Byrum, President and CEO. “We welcome partnerships with organizations like Northern Kentucky University which help to promote the idea that donating is choosing to recycle responsibly,” added Byrum.
Our thanks to Northern Kentucky University, its students and its staff team for their commitment to support Goodwill’s mission of putting people to work and commitment to environmental stewardship.
