Northwest Missouri State University and the Maryville community are partnering and encouraging students to “think green” before trashing belongings during the annual Big Green Move Out.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nodaway County annually sponsors the initiative and invites students to donate clothing, media and household items.
Blue donation bins are located on the Northwest campus in Lot 21 on Ninth Street, as well as the north Dollar General, Walmart, Hy-Vee and Sutherlands. For large pickups or more information, students should call 660.254.1665.
Students are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items to Northwest’s Pay it Forward Food Pantry. Donation boxes are located in the Offices of Student Affairs at the J.W. Jones Student Union and at the University Police Department.
Food donations also may be delivered to the Ministry Center at 971 S. Main St. in Maryville or by calling 660.562.6649.
