Friday was the last day of class for UT students, and Goodwill is hoping students will keep them in mind as they start packing up their dorm rooms over the next couple of weeks.
"We have a lot of college students that shop here in the Knoxville area, and they're very generous when it comes to giving back. I think last year they did over 1,800 pounds worth of stuff just in this drive alone, so they come here to shop, they donate here," said Adrienne Hendon with Goodwill Industries.
Goodwill set up donation bins in UT's dorm buildings Friday for its Summer Send Off campaign. They're encouraging students to give away items and clothing they don't want to move instead of throwing them away. The campaign continues through May 13th.
