Year End Donation Programs

Moving out? Do you have unwanted stuff in your dorm room that you want to get rid of? Don’t trash it; donate it instead! The Move-out Cleanout starts today and Dump & Run will be coming soon.

These two programs are offered by the University to get rid of your items in a responsible way. Click on the headings of both programs below for the flyers. Last year was the second largest move-out collection to date! We collected 18,137 lbs. of clothing, 2,960 lbs. of food, 1,179 lbs. of electronics, and 1,404 lbs. of other goods! The best part? By participating you are helping others in need and the planet too! Please spread the word!
