Move-Out Donation Drive

DDD banner2

May 10th-13th

Move-out is fast approaching, which means it's time to get ready for Donate Don't Dump, an annual event that allows students and their families to donate or recycle unwanted items while moving out of their residence hall.

Volunteers Needed

We're looking for volunteers to help make our move-out donation drive a great success!  Individuals and groups are welcome.  Sign up to volunteer today!

Shifts are 2.5 to 3 hours long depending on the day.  Water and snacks will be provided.  Job duties include pushing donation carts between residence halls and donation trucks, sorting items, lifting items, and stepping in and out of a donation truck.

Donation trucks will be staged in three locations on campus for large items.  The trucks will be parked near Burge, Hillcrest, and Mayflower.  Goodwill donation carts and Crisis Center donation barrels will be staged in the lobby of most residence halls for smaller items.
