LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation’s Green Team organized a clothing drive for the People’s City Mission Homeless Prevention Center of Lincoln, Nebraska, on March 20-21, 2014. The drive resulted in two truckloads of donated clothing.
Generous team members cleaned out their closets and brought in one or more bags of clothing in exchange for a Green Team insulated grocery tote. It is estimated that 175 Lincoln team members, or roughly 15% of the Lincoln location’s work force, participated in the event to support the homeless in Lincoln’s community. In fact, team members exceeded collection expectations and an additional truck pick-up had to be scheduled during the first day of the event.
All donations were welcomed and no sorting was required by the People’s City Mission. Clothing that isn’t fit to be worn was recycled and any money earned from that recycling will be used to cover operational costs for the Homeless Prevention Center.
“We saw the clothing drive event as an opportunity to combine our green initiatives with our strong support of volunteerism in the community,” says Kaela Paseka, lead graphics designer at Duncan Aviation and a member of the Green Team. “Since this first event was so successful, we plan to organize a coat drive in the fall and make the clothing drive an annual event.”
As a company, Duncan Aviation is investing in green solutions while simultaneously looking for ways to cut costs. This mentality will help the company become leaner and greener.
