Goodwill Makes Campus Move-Out Easy for UNL and Wesleyan Students

By Alana Sesow

The spring semester is almost over, which means campus move-out week is quickly approaching! Before you clean your room, pack up your belongings and turn in your keys, consider donating what you no longer need to Goodwill’s 2022 Campus Move-Out Drive.

During the final two weeks of the school year, drop off your gently used items in the Goodwill donation bins in your residence hall’s lobby. UNL students can donate from May 2nd – May 17th, and Wesleyan students can donate from April 27th to May 9th.

Donating to Goodwill isn’t just convenient; it helps the community, too. By funding a variety of local employment programs, the sales from Goodwill thrift stores help individuals of all backgrounds and abilities overcome barriers, find work and gain financial independence. In 2021 alone, Goodwill served over 3,500 individuals in Southeast Nebraska with employment-related services, such as job skills training, mentorship, mock interviews and more. Within the same year, Goodwill also diverted over 2.3 million pounds from the local landfill.

Goodwill accepts clothing, electronics and other home goods but cannot accept microwaves or TVs. For questions about Goodwill’s 2022 Campus Move-Out Drive, please contact donate@lincolngoodwill.org or call 402-742-8456.
