Official results are in: OSU residents donated over 22,533 pounds – 11 tons – during this year’s Great Move-Out Donation Drive!
- 9,980 pounds of housewares
- 3,119 pounds of food, toiletries, and school supplies
- 9,034 pounds of clothing, linens, and shoes
- 400 pounds of loft kit wood
This is quite a decrease from last year, and unfortunately, we did not meet our goal of 31,000 pounds for this year.
Most of the donation decrease came from the categories of housewares, food and wood. The decrease in wood could be explained by an increase in rentable lofting kits provided by University Housing and Dining, but we are unsure what contributed to a significant decrease in housewares, food, and the rest of the categories.
While we didn’t meet our goal for the year, we can all be proud of the 11 tons that were donated this year. We are extremely grateful to everyone who donated, as well as the volunteers who gave their time to pick-up and sort donations, and the University staff that helped make the Great Move-Out happen!
