Verse – “Dump and Run”
Lisa Heller lost a ring.
Dumpsters came to be her thing!
She taught students at her school
Making trash just wasn’t cool.
Donate stuff that still has use;
Reduce trash, avoid abuse
To the earth. Take your measure:
Turn the trash into treasure!
Lisa started Dump and Run.
College students have great fun
Giving, sharing–have a sale!
Find a bargain, make a deal!
Help a group that helps the world,
Buy recycled things you need.
Like you avoid INfluenza,
You can stamp out AFFluenza!
- Steve Shoemaker, Urbana, IL, pays tribute to “Dump and Run”.
At the end of the academic year, University of Illinois students drop off the “stuff” that might end up in the landfill to the University YMCA to be recycled by other students.
Former Executive Director of the University YMCA and Pastor of McKinley Presbyterian Church at the University of Illinois, Steve continues to host “Keepin’ the Faith” on Illinois Public Radio every Sunday evening at 5:00 CST.
