Wolf Pack N Give

Monday, April 20-Sunday, May 10

The Wolf Pack N Give program diverts the materials often discarded from the large exodus of students at the end of each year. University Housing and NC State’s Waste Reduction and Recycling Office collaborate to reduce waste during the end of the spring semester. By collecting what would have gone into the landfill, organizing the valuable items, and donating them to local organizations, reuse becomes a win-win. Items are donated to TROSA and Feed the Pack Food Pantry.

Acceptable Items

  • Furniture
  • Futon Mattresses & Frames (broken metal futon frames should be placed next to a landfill rolloff, staff will collect them for recycling)
  • Electronics (broken electronics should be placed in the yellow Electronics Recycling bins on campus)
  • Small home goods
  • Clothing and undergarments (laundered and in good condition)*
  • Shoes*
  • Wolf Pack N Give LogoFood Items (non-perishable and unopened – individually wrapped items are acceptable)
  • Books

  • Pillows
  • Rugs/Carpets (carpets that are not in good condition should be placed next to a landfill rolloff or dumpster)
  • School supplies
