Pack It Up and Pass It On

Pack It Up and Pass It On is an end-of-the-year recycling program that encourages Texas State students to donate unwanted clothes, kitchen items and room decorations to local families in need. 

Donations are sorted and set up in a "garage-sale" atmosphere. Clients of United Way agencies are invited to shop — for free — on distribution day. Last year, more than 1,500 San Marcos residents benefited from the program.
