The 2013 Great Move Out Sale – Collecting Donations NOW!

Moveout2Arts@Lehigh would like to remind our readers that the university’s annual Move Out Collection Drive has started this week, and will run through Friday, May 24th.

Students who will be packing up at the end of the semester are encouraged to donate unwanted clothing, linens, electronics, school supplies, household items, furniture, and unopened food at designated locations within each residence hall or at Windish Hall (across from Rauch Business Center on East Packer Avenue).

Students, staff and faculty are also welcome to participate by volunteering to help by picking up donations and/or sorting them at Windish Hall in any shift from today through May 24th. Volunteers also needed to support the incredibly large, and amazingly heart warming Great South Side Sale coming up on Saturday, June 1st, at St. John’s Windish Church (corner of Fourth and Buchanan streets).

To volunteer in any capacity, please to go to

Proceeds from this sale will fund Lehigh University’s Afterschool Homework Clubs for South Bethlehem children; an important piece of our community school partnerships, and support for education in our community.

In addition to benefiting this worthwhile cause, the sale also helps recycle much-needed items back into the community, at extremely affordable prices. We really don’t want to see shameful waste in the dumpsters.

Unwanted items can be taken directly to Windish Hall from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m – Monday through Friday until May 24th, or at approved locations in Residence Halls.

More information can be found at or by calling 610-758-6674 or emailing To read more about the Move Out Sale, please read this news article by Lehigh Communications writer, Bill Doherty (2010).

Remember that great family feeling we had at the Lehigh MOOV-in last August? This is another way to know you’re doing good in the world.
