Hoosier to Hoosier Community Sale

Hoosier to Hoosier is a partnership between the United Way of Monroe County, Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County, the City of Bloomington, IU Athletics, the IU Office of Sustainability, and IU Residential Programs and Services.

The sale is a reuse program that aims to 1) to divert reusable items generated during the student move-out from the landfill, 2) to prevent additional resource consumption by selling collected items to students and community members in order to 3) raise funds for local charities and other organizations.

The program allows students to donate reusable items, and also help out their neighbors in need at the same time. Aside from a small percentage that will be set aside for administrative costs associated with the second H2H next year, all proceeds from the sale will benefit United Way and Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County.
