About Chuck It for Charity

Chuck It for Charity is an annual partnership between Sustainable Campus and University Housing to collect all the “stuff” that is usually left behind during student move-out after the Spring semester. The material is weighed, sorted, and redistributed to Tallahassee community agencies in support of their work and the people they help.
