Patriot Packout Spring Sustainability Initiative

Patriot Packout, George Mason University’s annual sustainable move-out initiative, is scheduled from May 5 – May 22! Each year, Patriot Packout volunteers collect like-new and gently-used donations at the Fairfax campus, the SciTech campus, and the Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation. These donations support the Patriot Pantry, Trans Clothing Closet, Art Supply Sharing Closet, the First Gen+ Center, and Parking and Transportation’s bike and scooter programs, among others.

Visit the Patriot Packout website for a list of accepted donations, campus donation schedules, and volunteer opportunities!


As a reminder, classified staff and administrative/professional faculty receive sixteen hours of volunteer leave. For more information, visit the School Assistance and Volunteer Leave page or email
