Grad Bag is a green initiative to re-use dorm supplies. They collect, clean, package and re-distribute dorm room items to soon-to-be college students who don't have the means to buy these things on their own.

Grad Bag is collecting used dorm room items and college graduation is around the corner. Do you know a college senior (or any student) who is moving out of a dorm room? Don't throw those XL bed sheets away!

They collect directly at colleges in addition to local efforts. Grad Bag is currently looking for gently used linens, storage boxes, lamps, etc. They will take used camp bed linens and blankets as well.

For more information please contact: liz@gradbag.org or tara@gradbag.org and check out their website, www.gradbag.org.
