ShareFest allows students to donate their used items


Turn all your unneeded stuff into gifts for those in need at the 2022 ShareFest, during Miami University’s move-out week, May 12 through May 17.

Furniture, appliances, housewares, clothing and non-perishable food can be dropped off at the Chestnut Fields Parking lot. On-campus pickups can be scheduled for Miami dormitories.

The ShareFest campaigns were smaller than usual during 2020-2021 due to the COVID pandemic, but organizers are hoping for greater participation this year. In 2019, the organization generated 109 tons of donations distributed to eight recipient groups throughout Butler County, according to their press release.

The drive cannot accept mattresses, pillows or bedding. More information about the ShareFest drive is available on the organization’s website.
