How It Works:

Each year, OSU has the opportunity to offer students an easy way to donate the items they no longer need while moving out, redistributing those reusable goods to nonprofits in our community - usually over 20 tons! We believe that together we can all improve our campus and neighborhoods, keep goods out of landfills, and be a benefit to our community.
