Volunteer for the Give and Go Donation Drive during move-out

Help the Environmental Center collect clothing, books, electronics, household goods, non-perishable food and personal care products during the Give and Go Donation Drive in the residence halls during move-out. Sign up for shifts May 6–8.

Many donated items are redistributed to local nonprofit organizations that provide goods to community members at little or no cost. Some items stay on campus to benefit students, staff and faculty. Last year we estimate that over 40% of donated items stayed on campus or in Boulder County.

This year the Buff Pantry and the Basic Needs Center on campus will be the first organizations to receive non-perishable food and personal care items. Once they have reached capacity for what they can accept, the Emergency Family Assistance Association—a local Boulder organization that provides food, financial assistance, and family housing—will pick up the remaining items. 

CU yard sale May 18

If you or anyone you may know is interested in purchasing any items from move-out, Resource Central will be hosting a CU yard sale on May 18. At this sale, you can shop items from move-out such as lamps, decorations, storage bins and fans.

Like in 2023, Resource Central will also hold an on-campus sale during fall move-in to provide incoming students with low-cost furnishings for their rooms.
