Donation Drives

Anchorlink Registration Form

  • If you are interested in having a donation drive. Please complete this form via Anchorlink.

Location

  • University Housing and Student Centers will permit student organizations to set-up collection boxes at the central information desk in each residential area:
  • Warren|Moore, E. Bronson Ingram, Zeppos, BQ, Lewis, Hank Ingram, and Blakemore.
  • Additionally, boxes may be set-up at the front desks of The Commons Center and Sarratt Student Center and at the Sarratt Promenade.

Period

  • Only one organization at a time may set-up and operate a collection for a one-week period only, Monday morning through Sunday evening.
  • The sequence of groups will be on a first come, first served basis.
  • No collections will be approved during the exam period because this is reserved for Housing’s Annual Closing Collection.

Approval

  • Complete the Donation Drive Registration form in Anchor Link.
  • Wait for approval before placing collection containers.
  • Unapproved collection containers will be removed immediately from Residence Halls and Student Center buildings.

Signage

  • The student organization must submit a flyer to the Facilities Management Office in Branscomb #1106 one full week prior to the start of the donation drive.
  • The flyer should include information about the dates of the drive, the sponsoring student organization and the target charity.
  • After approval, the organization may post the flyers in residence halls on bulletin boards only.
  • Additionally, signage for collection containers is limited to the container itself.

Collection

  • The student group must provide contact information (including cell phone) for a representative in charge of the operation.
  • The group must provide a plan for monitoring collection boxes and collecting donated items.
  • In the event boxes overflow, OHARE will contact the representative to arrange a pick-up of donated items.
  • If there is no response within 24 hours, the items will be discarded.

A word of advice

  • Be sure to select a reputable charity.
  • Understand the organization’s terms and that they coincide with Housing and Student Centers guidelines.
