Move Out, Pitch In (MOPI) provides a chance to help out the community with unwanted furniture, clothes, supplies and food. Organizations in Pullman have come together for a sixth year in order to divert unnecessary waste from landfills and place these usable items into the homes of people in need.

Environmental Wellbeing Coordinator Jamie Bentley said students aren't always able to bring everything from their temporary home with them when moving out.

We have a lot of community partners who use items like that to sell or to give to people in our community who need those types of items,” Bentley said.

Last year, MOPI gave a new life to a total of 60,000 pounds of items that would have otherwise been thrown away.

MOPI will run until June 1. Items can be deliviered to the Congregational Church, St. James, Cougs Corner Market, Palouse Treasures and Valley Road Playfields until June 1.
