Jackets, sweaters, tee shirts, and pants alike were packed up yesterday morning in Rend Lake College’s Bookstore to be donated this week to the Goodwill store in Mt. Vernon. Over 125 adult and children-sized items filled five bags, which are scheduled to be taken to Mt. Vernon today.
Hannah Webb, Assistant Manager of the Bookstore, said the donation was prompted by a recent remodel to make room for the sale of snacks and beverages, including Starbucks coffee. The estimated retail value of the donation is $2,000.
