Charity and Distress Collection Bin Sites

The Center for Leadership and Service maintains administrative responsibility for the approval of all charity/distress collection bins throughout the Kean campus. Availability of space is limited and priority will be given to official University efforts. All bins may not obstruct entrances or exits. All collection bins must have a flyer attached to the front of the bin which has been stamped and approved by the Center for Leadership and Service.
