Sharefest collects food, household items and furniture


Sharefest, a nonprofit effort to collect and redistribute items donated by Miami University students, will collect items at Chestnut Fields Parking Lot from May 11 to 16.

Furniture and household items collected will be repurposed for residents in need or social service agencies throughout the region. Food dropped off at Chestnut Fields during Sharefest will be collected for the Talawanda Oxford Pantry and Social Services (TOPSS).

As well as the Chestnut Fields drop-off point, on-campus pick-ups at residence halls are also planned, according to the Sharefest website.
