Throw it our Way

YSJSU
Throw it our Way

As we approach the time when students will be moving out of their accommodation and potentially out of York all together, we wanted to make sure that any things you no longer need don’t just end up in the bin and can be redistributed to those who need it most.

That’s why we’re starting the “throw it our way” campaign in partnership with Mind, Oxfam, RSCPA & the York Community Furniture Store, to make sure that any clothing, electrical appliances, or furniture that you no longer need can be donated, rather than just ending up in the bin.

The University are also running a campaign in partnership with the British Heart Foundation so if you want to donate to them, you’ll find donation bins across all of our accommodation sites and on campus next to Porter’s Lodge. Keep an eye on our social media for more information on how you can get involved in both campaign!
