Collection FAQs

  • Can I still make a donation? Can you pick up my donation?

    After May 14th, we cannot accept any donations from drop-off locations. Please contact Perrin Woods ( to discuss potential alternatives for your donation. After August 4th, we cannot accept any more donations until our regularly-scheduled donation period in the following spring. Please consider donating to a local thrift store instead!

  • Can I sell items to the program?

    No, we only accept donations.

  • Where can I make a donation?

    In early May, we will be setting up collection bins across campus. There will be spots available in Perkins Green, Riverknoll, University Commons, Global Village, and on all floors of residence halls. No off-campus donation bins will be set up.

  • How do I get involved??

    We would love to have you work with us! Check out our “Join the Team” page for an application to work as a captain, or check our upcoming events page to find volunteer shifts.

Sale FAQs

    We accept cash and Tiger Bucks only. We recommend using the SAU’s ATM or transferring Tiger Bucks online if needed.

  • Do you sell (item)?

    We sell almost everything that’s donated to us! With the exception of food, toiletries, and cleaning supplies, you can find just about anything a student might need.

    After the sale ends on Friday, remaining items are donated to local charities. We do not have any sales or giveaways to students after the sale ends.

    Sorry, but we don’t allow any members of the RIT community to see the items early because we’re very busy setting up tons of stuff for Tuesday morning!

    We are unable to hold items or allow people to shop outside of our hours.
