R&DE Expands Donation Program Throughout the Year

Monday, November 2, 2020

R&DE's popular Give and Go program is no longer just for students on the "go". Now, there are ten locations placed throughout graduate housing areas where students can bring their items for donation throughout the year. Working with local partners Goodwill and Recycle for Change, the collection boxes are for household items in good condition that can be donated for local communities. The Goodwill trailer is located in Abrams Court and items collected there will be donated to the San Jose Goodwill. There are also collection points in the laundry rooms of Rains, Studio 5 and Studio 6, as well as 160 Comstock. Recycle for Change collection boxes are located outside of EVGR-D, Quillen, Munger Courtyard, Barnes Court, Dudley Court, Lyman, 160 Comstock, Hastorf, and Studio 1 and Mirrielees, with goods donated to international communities. Through Give and Go, students donated upwards of 80 tons of material in 2019 instead of sending it to landfill, and this new initiative is expected to expand on this throughout the year.
