Duck fallout after losing the NC

PORTLAND, Oregon – Goodwill Industries and The Salvation Army in
Oregon sent out plea to Oregonians today to immediately stop donations
of University of Oregon Football apparel. “We have received so many
donations of Duck-related clothing we have simply run out of storage
space,” explained Steve Farnsworth, executive Director of Goodwill
Industries in Portland. “It comes in by the carload but never seems to
go back out,” he said, adding “even the homeless refuse to wear the
gaudy and ostentatious clothing.”

The Salvation Army has also experienced record volumes of Duck apparel
donations. “We have contacted International aid organizations in
effort to unload some of this awful clothing but because of the bright
colors and horrendous logos our offers have been declined,” said
Michael Cole, Donations Manager for The Salvation Army. He went on to
say “it’s sad to see needy people choose to go without clothing rather
than wear the hideous University of Oregon shirts, shorts and
jerseys.”

Both organizations have hopes that local hospital emergency rooms will
accept some of the Duck clothing to help clean up after record numbers
of “fans” were injured while jumping, leaping and, in some cases,
hurling themselves off the University of Oregon bandwagon.
