“2 Good 2 Toss,” a Niagara University service program intended to keep reusable items out of landfills, raised $2,334.20 this May for the Office of Campus Ministry and the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
For the fourth straight year, members of NU’s Vincentian Mission Certificate program invited students (and employees) to donate items rather than toss them into dumpsters or leave them behind as the rush to summer break begins.
The reusable items were then sold at a community garage sale that took place on campus May 18-19.
The initiative has raised nearly $7,500 since being instituted.
“We are so thankful for the support of the individuals who continue to make ‘2 Good 2 Toss’ a resounding success,” noted the Rev. Kevin G. Creagh, C.M., NU’s vice president for university mission and ministry. “The variety of mission-critical programs that we are able to offer to the community is due in large part to enterprising efforts like these.”
Individuals who coordinated this year’s “2 Good 2 Toss” program included:
Rev. Kevin Creagh, C.M.
Kurt Von Voetsch
