How to Donate:

Oregon State University invites students to bring items they will no longer want or need to a drop-off event at the end of the school year! Donated items will go to local nonprofits for reuse.

The 2024 donation drive will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday through Monday, June 15-17 at the Benton County Fairgrounds' Guerber Building  (110 SW 53rd St.).

Want to donate but cannot make it? Check out the Corvallis-Area Reuse Directory for a list of places that accept goods. 


What is Accepted for Donation

Items must be clean, dry and in working condition.  

  • furniture and mattresses 
  • clothing and shoes
  • linens
  • food (sealed and non-perishable)
  • electronics
  • books and school supplies
  • other household items (kitchenware, décor, appliances, toiletries, cleaning supplies, etc.)

*Leaving your bike behind? A bike drop event is TBD. In past years, OSU would refurbish abandoned bikes for resale, the goal being to offer students affordable, ready-to-ride bikes at the beginning of next school year. Learn more here
