Sustainable Move-Out

 What is Sustainable Move-Out?

• Students, faculty and staff make donations of things that they don't want at the end of the spring semester

• We collect the unwanted items from students, faculty, and staff and display it all so that it is easy to view in our tent

• UC community members are welcome to come and take things from our Move-Out Tent for FREE
That’s right – FREE SHOPPING!
• Sustainable Move-Out takes place during the last week of the spring semester
• After graduation, all remaining donations go to local charities throughout Pennsylvania
• Low quality items or items in disrepair that can be salvaged are recycled at Pottstown RSI

How to Donate your stuff:

  1. Bring your donations to the Move-Out Tents (see map for locations) between 5/9/14 and 5/16/14
  2. Put them in the labeled Move-Out collection boxes that will be in your hallways

Even if you only have an hour or two you can commit to volunteering, we can always use the help.  This initiative would not be possible without the help of our volunteers.

As a volunteer you would be doing:
• Collecting donated goods from campus residence halls and bringing them to the free market tent locations
• Maintaining and supervising the tents
• Organizing and loading goods into trucks to take them to local thrift stores and charities
