Summer Campaign: Give & Go

Main content start

Give & Go

Save time. Reduce waste. Donate to local communities.

R&DE Student Housing makes it easy for students to leave Stanford sustainably. Students can "Give" their unwanted clothing, bikes, electronic equipment, mattresses, and mini fridges in good condition before moving out to "Go" on to their next adventure. Goodwill barrels or trailers located throughout residential areas helped serve hundreds of local people in need, all while reducing the amount of waste Stanford sends to landfill. R&DE has Give and Go bins available from specified dates from early June to late September to support grad students who will be moving out. Bins will be available throughout summer for students who may need to return to campus for their items after departing quickly for shelter-in-place.

Alpaca your stuff, donate the rest, and win!

What can you donate?
