Capstone Project brings Sustainable Cause

Capstone project students have teamed up with the American Clothing Recycling Company to introduce a distinctive opportunity at Raiderfest. Throughout the event, a dedicated truck will be stationed in the MUG loop, manned by students and adults holding collection signs. We're thrilled to accept a wide range of items, including clothing, shoes, towels, bedding, curtains, surplus fabric, stuffed animals, hats, scarves, handbags, and belts. It's an excellent opportunity to declutter while contributing to a sustainable cause.
