During a clothing drive at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) April 27th through May 7th, Planet Aid collected 10,050 pounds of clothing, as approximately 3,000 students left the campus at the end of the spring semester.
Planet Aid, a self-sustained nonprofit organization which relies on the recycling and resale of clothing, shoes and toys for humanitarian efforts, also recently conducted a clothing drive at Pepperdine University.
Eleven recycling bins were placed at each of the campuses near student residence halls and apartments.
“Students in both campuses have responded very positively to our presence at their schools,” said Jackie Goodman, area manager for Planet Aid in Southern California.
“Students are becoming more environmentally conscious and we are pleased to be able to provide them an outlet to recycle their used clothing and shoes.
“We would like to thank Pepperdine University and Loyola Marymount University for recognizing the importance of providing their students with an opportunity to donate to such a good cause.”
