UWinnipeg Community Giveaway

This event was started in 2019 by Eco Team UWinnipeg. During this event, Eco Team UWinnipeg with the help of the CSO, Student Services and Physical Plant, provides the resources for students to donate their household items to community members through a free giveaway day. Any items not taken on Giveaway Day are taken to Flavie-Laurent Centre and/or Main Street Project and donated to individuals and families in need.

In 2019 UWinnipeg diverted 91kgs of waste from the landfill through this initiative.
