The Free Store, located in the basement of Asia House, houses an assortment of free items that are available for anyone to take, including clothing, kitchenware, books, accessories, school supplies, crafts, etc. Our aim is to collect and redistribute functional, clean resources that would otherwise be thrown away.
College students and community members are encouraged to make donations either at the Free Store during our hours, or through our new dorm bin system. Towards the end of Spring 2023, donation bins will be located in residential dorms for students to drop off their unwanted (but usable!) items, which will be collected on a weekly basis and brought to the Free Store. Donations can also be made by appointment.
Do's and Don'ts of Free Store Donations
