School supplies will be collected for the first time this year along with unopened toiletries, nonperishable food, clothing, furniture, carpets, appliances and cardboard. The school supplies, toiletries and food will be collected in boxes in the lobbies of each residence hall. All the other items can be brought out to the tents. Easter Seals will have three collection boxes where clothing can be deposited. We will also accept clothing under the tents. Housing students only should place items under the tents. Anything that is broken should be marked with a sticker that is available at the tent. Housing will make sure those items are recycled along with the cardboard.
