Give + Go Green!

May 3rd – 23rd!

This is an initiative by Barnard and Columbia to reduce the amount of waste by students at the end of the school year. Every year, we throw out perfectly useful clothes, appliances, books, toiletries, and more because we simply can’t keep them over the summer. Instead of giving all of that to the landfill, give it to someone in need! Barnard donates you stuff to a couple of great organizations including Rock and Wrap it Up, Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc.

When: May 9 – May 20

Where: in a dorm near you
