Continued: Take it or leave it
Harvest Hope isn’t the only local charity to benefit from the largesse of USC students. Household items, toiletries and clothes have gone to Hannah House and Sistercare, two local women’s shelters. The Salvation Army and Goodwill got the rest of the clothing, while Habitat for Humanity will received carpet and other household goods.
The program is a big hit with the students.
“It’s better than just sending this stuff to the garbage pile. So, I like what they’ve done.” McElwee says.
The Take It or Leave It program, started in 2001, is part of the University green initiative.
