Since 2008, Business Services has operated PennMOVES which collects items that Penn students can’t take with them when they leave campus in May – clothes, furniture, appliances, books, housewares, toys, sporting goods and nonperishable food, etc. To divert them from landfill, these items are collected and donated to Goodwill. On average, over 52,000 pounds of items are collected each year.
PennMOVES 2021 will run from April 30 – May 18. Please note: because of the ongoing pandemic, significant changes have been made to PennMOVES this year. Donation locations will be self-service only, and will not be staffed. Because of this change, large or unwieldy items that do not fit in the donation bin slots will not be accepted, and under no circumstances may items be left unattended outside of the donation boxes. All donations must be deposited inside the donation bins. Additionally, donation receipts will not be issued. If you would like to donate an item and require a donation receipt, please contact the phone number listed on the donation bin.
