Cornell's 11th annual Dump and Run program seeks donations of clothing, furniture, nonperishable food and other useful items through June 1.
Donations of nearly all useful items are accepted, including shoes, organizational units, working appliances and electronics, furniture, sporting goods, coat hangers, decorations, new toiletries, nonperishable food and text books. The program does not accept mattresses, pillows, underwear, socks or anything broken.
Dump and Run collection bins are located in the College of Veterinary Medicine, Anabel Taylor Hall, Day Hall, Willard Straight Hall and Humphreys Service Building, as well as in all university and Greek residential buildings.
This year’s Dump and Run sale, Aug. 24-25, in Helen Newman Gym will benefit Cops, Kids and Toys; Loaves and Fishes; Shelter Outreach Services; Greater Ithaca Activities Center; Finger Lakes ReUse; and the Cornell United Way Student Campaign.
