2017 will be the seventh anniversary of Give ‘N Go on Bentley’s Campus. The past years have been successful, diverting 1,500 pounds of material from the landfill in Spring 2016 alone.
This year there will be five drop off locations staffed by temporary workers and Bentley community volunteers. Drop of locations will consist of pop-up tents with large signs.
What to Donate?
- Clothing, Shoes
- Unopened, non-perishable food
- School Supplies
- Kitchen items
- Electronics that work
- Toiletries, laundry detergent, or cleaning supplies (okay if they are open so long as they don't spill)
Drop off locations:
- North Campus
- Main Campus Green Space*
- Freshman Res Halls between Slade and Trees
- Parking Lot 17 (outside of Rhodes)
- South Campus Green Space*
Drop off times:
Donation stations will be open from
12 pm - 5 pm program Tuesday, May 9 – Thursday May 11th
11 am - 3:30 pm Saturday May 13th in the locations with the * above only
Similar to previous years, students will be allowed to swap items at the donation stations to encourage the reuse of goods. There are no rules for swapping, but swappers must keep donations organized and put items like clothing back in boxes when finished. Trashing of the donation stations will not be accepted and any persons who appear to be ignoring these rules will be asked to leave the donation station.
All items left over at the end of each day will be donated to local charities.
