SWEPT CLEAN-Representatives from over 50 Boston-area shelters and human service agencies sifted through some 17,000 items donated by students moving out of the residence halls in this year's Cleansweep effort, sponsored by the Alumni Association. About 40 alumni volunteers collected everything from clothes to refrigerators and made them available to the agencies at three campus locations. Here, agency workers remove furniture from the Cabaret Room on Lower Campus. The items are of particular use to temporary shelters, which use them to furnish permanent apartments for their clients.
