Give N' Go
One falcon's trash is another falcon's treasure
Give 'N Go began with a few Resident Assistants who saw mountains of usable goods piled into Bentley's trash dumpsters every spring.
It is the sustainable Move-Out Program that reduces trash generation, encourages community via student exchange, and reduces students' expenses by reusing a fellow student's "trash." Above all, the program promotes donation because it provides a smart, convenient solution to redistribute reusable items that students no longer need or want.
Spring 2013 Give 'N Go Results - we collected 8,000 pounds in just 5 days! This number-while impressive- was a reduction compared to last year's results due to logistical/ scheduling changes; our continually evolving process will be assessed for 2014 for maximum donations.
Furniture, clothing, books and bedding are donated to local charities including The Salvation Army, Chesterbrook Afterschool program and Global Thrift Store in Waltham.
