Donate items when you Move Out for Hunger

Submitted by Shawn Funk

Move out for hunger

If you are moving out of a residence hall, fraternity or sorority, or out of Manhattan, you may find yourself with items that you don't want to pack. Rather than wasting those items, consider donating them to Cats' Cupboard. Cats' Cupboard has partnered with Housing and Dining Services to offer Move Out for Hunger.

Donation drop boxes are located in the lobby of each residence hall on campus and at each of the fraternities and sororities for students to donate items as they move out from May 6-10. Items accepted include:

  • Unopened, nonperishable food items.
  • Unopened hygiene products.
  • New or gently-used kitchen/household appliances.

Most needed items include:

  • Microwaves.
  • Manual and electric can openers. 
  • Dish soap.
  • Toothpaste.
  • Deodorant.
  • Ramen noodles.
  • Shelf-stable milk.
  • Gluten-free items.
  • Shampoo.
  • Conditioner.
  • Hand soap.

Items that cannot be accepted include:

  • Perishable foods.
  • Used hygiene products.
  • Clothes.
  • School supplies.

Items can also be dropped off at Cats' Cupboard during regular hours: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday. Summer hours will go into effect beginning May 13 and Cats' Cupboard will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Cats' Cupboard is located at 1021 Denison Ave.
