While move-out week is still nearly 8 weeks away, it will be here before we know it! As you begin to plan your move-out packets for your tenants, please consider including information about ShareFest
in your materials or emails.
WHAT IS SHAREFEST?
ShareFest is an annual collection drive, which accepts good-condition and reuseable furniture, housewares, clothing and non-perishable food from Miami University students and Oxford residents.
Donors complete an online form to indicate the items they wish to donate, then volunteers go to the house or apartment to pick up the items during the selected day and one-hour time block. Donated items are picked up by volunteers and staff of social service agencies from Butler County.
ShareFest helps keep the city clean and helps prevent usable items from going to the landfill, and as an added bonus, we hope that it reduces additional refuse collection fees for Property Managers and Owners.
The social service agencies that receive donations will distribute items to people in need, or sell the items in their thrift stores. All proceeds from the sale of ShareFest donations must benefit the social service agency.
