At the end of each year, we see many perfectly re-usable items and non-perishable food get thrown away by students during move-out. This semester, Residence Life, Printing & Mailing Services and several other UP community members have worked together to coordinate opportunities for students to donate their unwanted items and share them with our UP and local communities.
Each residence hall has donation boxes set up in key locations where students can place their unwanted food, clothing and household items any time between now and May 7. For students living off campus, Printing & Mailing Services has donation boxes set up in their vestibule which can be accessed using their student ID cards.
From Tuesday, May 11 to Friday May 14, the Anchor will be open every day from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. and from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. to welcome University community members, staff, and students to come in to browse and grab what they need. Left over items will then be donated to our local community partners.
