2020 Results

With 2020 as an outlier, OSU has generally been increasing the weight of donations since 2010. 

In 2020, we received donations of 3,763 pounds.

We had a significant decrease in donations due to the fact that many residents moved out much earlier than expected because of the COVID-19 pandemic. While we didn't collect as much as we have in previous years, we can all be proud of the 1.9 tons that were donated this year. We are extremely grateful to everyone who donated, as well as the staff that helped make the Great Move-Out happen!

The donations help our local nonprofits and those in our community who are in need, plus it benefits the environment by promoting the reuse of materials!
