PLASTIC GROCERY BAG DRIVE TO HELP THE HOMELESS: An EMU Honors College student will be conducting a campaign drive to collect plastic grocery bags to be used to make sleeping mats for the homeless. Each mat takes approximately 700 bags. There will be a collection bin located in Starkweather Hall between Wednesday, Sept. 11 through Wednesday, Sept. 18. This will be an on-going campaign so you are welcome to collect plastic grocery bags throughout the semester on an individual basis or have your entire department join in. You can contact Leanna when you have collected enough bags for her to pick-up. In you have questions or need to schedule a pick-up, please send her an email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
