Waste Reduction & Recycling (WRR), in collaboration with University Housing, held the 4th annual Wolf Pack N Go Sale on May 15 in the E.S. King Village Community Center, featuring items donated by NC State students.
During a time when donations are declining and needed more than ever, NC State Students gave freely. In fact students donated just as much as they did in previous years.
Students donated more than 1000 lbs. of food, 9,300 lbs. of clothing and supplies, and 3,000 lbs. of electronics and furniture. All food has been donated to the Interfaith Food Shuttle and all unsold items were donated to several non-profit organizations in North Carolina. Not only were students ready to donate, they also may have been more conscious of producing less waste.
“We noticed that in general during the moving out process less waste was produced this year versus last year, which is NC State’s goal,” said Nessa Stone, operations manager for WRR.
The sale raised $1,500 for sustainable education programs on campus.
