(KXXV) -

Three area colleges are teaming up with the Heart of Texas Goodwill to help students move out of their dorms and apartments while helping the community.

Baylor University, Texas A&M University and Mary-Hardin Baylor students can donate all the things they don’t want to take home thanks to the move-out event.

“Our students are really great about recycling throughout the school year,” Carol Binzer, Director of Administrative & Support Services at Texas A&M University said. “Goodwill Campus Move-Out takes the idea to the next level. Students just donate their unwanted items and Goodwill can then sell them to help fund job training services in our community. It’s simple.”

Last year, Goodwill created more than 14,000 hours of job training services from the sale of items donated during campus move-out events. Heart of Texas Goodwill alone collected approximately 55,000 pounds of donations between the three universities.

“One of the great features of Goodwill Campus Move-Out is its convenience, both for students and the university,” Dan Nisley, President and CEO of Heart of Texas Goodwill said. “Participating schools last year reported an average 20 percent increase in the donated goods they collected compared to prior efforts.”
