Get Involved!
Hoosier to Hoosier Volunteering

The Hoosier to Hoosier Sale is about to begin, and it needs volunteers! The sale is a reuse program that seeks to divert reusable items from the landfill during student move-out, prevent additional resource consumption by selling collected items to students and community members, and raise funds for local charities and other organizations. If you are interested in volunteering with Hoosier to Hoosier, the first volunteer work days will be hosted from May 7th - May 11th.
