Through the generosity of students, faculty and staff, we collect clothes and household items and donate them to the First English Lutheran Church on James St. in Syracuse. All the items donated are given out to members of the larger Syracuse community. Last year we collected over 50 tons of "stuff" to help almost 3000 families in the Syracuse area.
We are also in need of Team Captains. A Team Captain will organize the volunteers for one of two or three routes around campus. They will work with the driver of truck to make sure that donations are collected from each of their assigned sites. Ideally, a Team Captain would be able to use their car to drive volunteers to the assigned sites on their route.
Students who reside off-campus can also donate any unwanted furniture items such as:
The furniture must be in decent condition. The charitable organizations reserve the right to not take any items if they are not in suitable condition.
**They will also not take queen or king size mattresses, box springs or sleeper sofas.**
Please note: In the past, OCCS has set up appointments for students who live off-campus to donate any unwanted furniture items. However, we WILL NOT be doing that this year- we will provide information for charities that students may contact, but we will not set up appointments for students.
Questions, please contact Elin Riggs at firstname.lastname@example.org
OCCS will be collecting items for Ten Tons of Love during our Annual Earth Day Event. These items can be dropped off at the Westcott Community Center, 826 Euclid Ave, Syracuse, NY 13210, from 10:00AM-1:00PM on Saturday, April 23, 2016.
