EUGENE, Ore. — High schoolers are learning a lesson in real life while teaming up with the University of Oregon’s housing department to move students out of the dorms.
The program “Lighten Your Load” allows students to donate unwanted items to the Springfield Public Schools Family Resource Center.
Food for Lane County also benefits from the program when students donate their unused meal points. UO housing usually donates more than $1,400 in non-perishable items.
