Office Supplies

Does your department have office supplies that have been sitting unused for years? Are you moving on campus and just have too many supplies you don’t want to move with you? You can donate those items to the office supply shop located at 10 Cleaveland Street.

We accept most office supplies and then offer them for re-use to other departments around campus. As the shop fills up, surplus items will be donated to local non-profits that help provide school supplies to teachers.

This list of inventory has additional information and the most recent inventory. The list is updated on the first of each month.

Contact Keisha Payson at or 207-725-3086 if you have items to donate, would like to see what is available, or just have general questions about what items will be accepted.
