JH-U-Turn sale returns to Homewood campus in June

The Homewood campus’s Ralph S. O’Connor Recreation Center was packed last year when JH-U-Turn debuted as a one-stop shopping destination for no-longer-needed household and personal items. The sale returns in June to benefit the Johns Hopkins Neighborhood Fund and the United Way campaign.

JH-U-Turn is designed to help reduce waste and support a good cause by asking students to donate their end-of-school-year items, including clothing, furniture, books, electronics and household items, and offer these items a second chance by selling them to benefit someone else.

The Johns Hopkins Neighborhood Fund was created in 2007 from the vision of then President William R. Brody to support nonprofit organizations that both serve the communities in close proximity to our campuses and are associated with Johns Hopkins through employee and/or institutional involvement.

This year’s JH-U-Turn takes place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 11, in the O’Connor Recreation Center.

To schedule a donation drop-off, contact Carrie Bennett, campus liaison, at
