Students - Donate your gently used clothing, household goods, furniture and other items during our annual donation drive during move-out. 

On Grounds: May 6-16

Off Grounds: May and June

Hoos ReUse is an annual donation drive to encourage students living on or off Grounds to donate gently used items during move-out. Students are encouraged to donate clothing, furniture, electronics, non-perishable foods, and other useful items to benefit non-profits. In 2019, the Hoos ReUse program increased its donations by 71% percent to 62,824 pounds! Help us gather more donations by finding your most convenient drop off location below.

UVA Sustainability will operate a modified Hoos ReUse Donation Drive in alignment with University COVID-19 protocols. (We will not be hosting a Free Store this year due to COVID. Thank you for understanding.)
