Wolf Pack-N-Give Move-Out

Wolf Pack-n-Give

Wolf Pack-N-Give is a collaborative program between University Housing and NC State Waste Reduction and Recycling to divert the materials often discarded by students moving off of campus at the end of each year. By collecting, organizing, and donating items that would have gone into the landfill, our students, community, and planet benefit! Currently, items are donated to TROSA, Feed the Pack Food Pantry, and the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.
