On Monday, Oct. 3, lost and found items will be donated to one of two charities, either a Native American reservation through retired football coach Dave Vierra, or Goodwill.As of now, they are on display for students outside the main office in between ASB and the guidance counselor’s office.According to AP Secretary Monique Orozco, the number of items that accumulated in the past five weeks seemed more than usual. In past years, the donation drive happened twice a year, but this year, administration may send the items to charity on a case-by-case basis.“It’s unfortunate that no one comes to claim all the things. [It is] a lot of stuff,” Orozco said.

Even though Orozco rarely sees students peruse the lost and found display, senior Hemanth Kini, who learnt about the lost and found display from the School Loop post, believes a majority of the student body does know about the lost and found system in the office. Both Orozco and Kini believe, though, that a change in location may attract more students.

“If they did move it [to a new place to be] more visible, that would definitely help people find their clothes,” Kini said.

All valuable items, including electronics and jewelry, will still be kept at Orozco’s desk. In addition, any new items found this week will not be donated in the drive next Monday.
