Move Out Madness Helps Keep Bellingham Beautiful
June 26, 2017
Move Out Madness, a year-end event to help students get rid of their unwanted furniture and items generated from moving out, organized by Zero Waste Western and the Office of Sustainability and sponsored by Campus Community Coalition, City of Bellingham and Zero Waste Western, was a huge success with more than 60 students, five nonprofits and dozens of community members participating.
The five nonprofits – RE Store, House 2 Home, Arc of Whatcom, Soap 4 Hope, Allied Arts of Whatcom County, and Opportunity Council – were able to take as many donated items as they wanted. With the help of students and community members, M.O.M organizers were able to fill a 17-foot U-Haul with what was left of the donated items and deliver it to Value Village, a local thrift store.
