Student Furniture Donations?

Both Jill Barber and Ben Hill wrote to me with a good suggestion. They noted that many Western Ontario students will be graduating and moving out in the coming weeks. Every year when that happens, furniture shows up on London’s curbs. They both wonder whether there isn’t a way to have that furniture donated to arriving families?

Jill notes in particular that the Salam Community Donation Centre needs items. Ben suggests that we might help students get their items to Goodwill, which is providing vouchers to refugees.

I am sure that Western students would be keen to help, if only they knew how. Does anyone know how to get the students who are moving out connected with groups that are collecting donations? I can put volunteers in touch with Ben and Jill.
