DONATION STATION RESERVATION PROCESS
The Donation Station may be reserved by campus-affiliated organizations only and are reserved on a "first-come, first-served" basis. In an attempt to allow as many campus organizations as possible an opportunity to reserve the Donation Station, campus organizations are allowed to reserve a Donation Station for a period of two weeks per semester.
On the first day of an organization's reservation, organization representatives should report to the Information Center to claim the Donation Station with their printed confirmation and customized poster (confirmation and poster template [LINK to templet] http://giving.buffalostate.edu/sites/giving.buffalostate.edu/files/uploa... are sent to the e-mail provided by the organization on the reservation form). Only executive board members listed on the Student Organization Registration Form may request that the organization's Donation Station be opened and/or locked. Therefore, student organizations should be prepared to bring their updated Buffalo State identification card along with their printed confirmation when claiming the Donation Station. Student Union Building Managers will open the Donation Station for the organization and lock the Donation Station when the organization has finished.
Failure to claim the Donation Station by Monday at 12:30 p.m. following the first reservation date, may result in the Donation Station being given to another organization on the waitlist. Further, an organization's Donation Station must be taken down by 9:00 p.m. on the last day of the reservation period. If items are not removed by that time, the Student Philanthropy Council [LINK to http://giving.buffalostate.edu/spc] will be permitted to remove Donation Station content. To collect your donations call (716) 878-3725 for immediate pickup in Cleveland Hall 412. The Campbell Student Union is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
