Rockford, Ill. – The Rockford University Residence Life department has successfully completed a second annual donation drive to Goodwill of Northern Illinois. Items collected in the 358 pound donation include clothing, shoes, small appliances, bikes, linens, decorative items and other dorm belongings.
Organized by residence hall director Mariah Harris, the drive encouraged students to donate items they no longer had a use for to Goodwill at the end of the spring semester. Mariah was presented with a plaque in May by Sam Schmitz, President of Goodwill of Northern Illinois, to commend the donation. The first annual donation drive, held in spring 2014, gathered over 1,500 pounds of goods to be donated.
