EcoReps Give and Go Green

If you have old belongings you don't want to just toss... donate to us or better yet join us for our spring and fall collecting/selling pushes!

Dining!
Give and Go Green Volunteers work hard to collect, clean, store, and donate!

"The Give and Go Green Committee wants YOU to donate!"

Give and Go Green is a donation drive held at the end of every spring semester. We collect items like mini fridges, fans, and lamps to store over the summer and then sell to new students during Fall NSOP at the Green Sale for a very discounted price. Each year, we accept around 40 volunteers from our applicant pool to stay a week after school ends in the city to help collect and sort through donations. Then in the Fall, accepted students come before NSOP to help new student check-in, and coordinate NSOP events, culminating in the Green Sale. Although Give and Go Green generates revenue for Ecoreps to fund other large projects like Greenfest, we also donate all of the clothes, food, toiletries, and books we receive to local charities, and have been the largest donators to Goodwill in the past years.
