Chuck it for Charity 2018 stats: 20.5 TONS of "stuff" collected!
Chuck It for Charity is a 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.
