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. This year's 2017 Hoos ReUse program increased by 40 percent to nearly 37,000 pounds! View the Hoos ReUse Results infographic to see a breakdown of what was collected and a list of our partner charities. If you’d like to make a donation during the academic year, consider donating directly to the Hoos ReUse partner charities listed on the infographic.
