Donate Don't Waste and Summer Food Drive
If you have any surplus kitchenware, clothes, books or non-perishable food, they can be donated via the Donate Don't Waste scheme - and please ensure that students you work with are aware of the scheme, which is primarily targeted at them. It will run throughout June, and into July in many locations.
At this time of year the University and Students' Union work together to ensure that when students move house, it's as easy as possible to pass surplus items on to good causes (rather than the alternative, which is incineration!).
Last year's scheme led to 8,537 bags of good reusable stuff being saved for good causes! This year, we're working with S6 food bank for food donations, and British Heart Foundation for other items. All support is very gratefully received.
Donations can be made at the Students' Union, University Residences and at various other locations across the city. For more information, including an interactive map of donation sites, please see our website.
