Hoos ReUse, previously known as Chuck it for Charity, is an annual donation drive to allow students living both on and off Grounds to donate gently used items during move-out. Students living on Grounds are encouraged to donate clothing, furniture, electronics, non-perishable foods, and other useful items to benefit non-profits. Last year, the Hoos ReUse program increased its donations by 40 percent to nearly 37,000 pounds! Help us gather more donations by finding your most convenient drop off location!
