Saturday April 28th from 9am to 3pm *********************************************   Students living in uOttawa’s 10 campus residences must leave on April 29th before noon. Many things are left behind including; unopened food products, dishes, clothes, etc.  Our goal is to save every last item that can be reused or recycled from going to landfill! With your help, the food will be sent to the Ottawa Mission and the Food Bank, while the household goods and clothes will be sent to the uOttawa Free Store, and several charitable organisations around Ottawa.    We collect 4-6 metric tonnes of items on this day! (Which makes a lot of people in need very happy!)   It is a very physical day; we will be climbing flights of stairs, and carrying boxes and bags to the sorting rooms.    Tasks will include:  -collecting food left behind in common refrigerators; -donating the food; -collecting boxes of items left behind in common rooms; -transporting items to the sorting rooms; -sorting and cleaning; -being awesome!   Volunteers will need to show up at 9am in the lobby of the Leblanc residence to make sure they get all of the day's instructions.     Please dress appropriately for the event. ***Wear closed toed shoes (no sandals or flip-flops). Wear clothing you don’t mind getting a little dirty.
