my daughter attended miami university and will be going back in the fall. when me and my husband was there to move her home this year, we set things out for the taking. my daughter and i were in the kitchen of the house my daughter was sharing with three freinds,an we heard a commotion out in front of the house. we both walked out to see what was going on and there was a police officer there that was telling a young couple that it was stealing from the town,because these young people were picking up things we had put on the street for such people to take. my daughter and i were furious. i informed the police officer that i had given these things to these people. the police officer informed me that that was not allowed. i feel like these things were mine to give to whom i want to have them. my husband and i payed for these things. next year we will put out a yard sale sign and give these things away to the people we choose to have them. if i want sharefest to have these things i will donate them to sharefest, otherwise, sharefest, stay away from my things.
ShareFest does not collect items from the curb. Students and residents who are donating are advised that only uniformed ShareFest volunteers will pick up their items, at prescheduled dates and times.

yes if they want to give it to sharefest they can call sharefest, otherwise let the people get it. i was there last year and went to a dumpster, the sharefest people were at that dumpster looking around and they told me i was not allowed to take anything. i ask why not, that everyone else was. they said the city was going to stop that and they would be the only ones to get the things off the streets and dumpsters. the woman then called the law. about that time a young girl came out handed me two clothes baskets. one was a hot pink mesh, the other was a wicker basket with wheels. the police drove up and told me i wasnt allowed to take anything and they were going to stop people from getting things off the streets. at that time the old bitch from sharefest walked over (while the police were there) took the baskets out of my hands and took them over and put on their wagon. the baskets had not even touched the ground between the time the girl gave them to me until the woman took them from my hands. if i would have thought in time, i should have said the girl gave them to me, i did not take them from the street or the dumpster, they were gave to me. she had no business taking them, honestly because they were gave to me. also i had some stuff in my truck that a man had given me. i told the police that a man had given me those things, he had even carried them from his daughters apartment and loaded them in my truck. so there was nothing they could do.
ShareFest volunteers do not dumpster dive. In addition, volunteers are advised to call the police if they encounter ShareFest imposters.

Who in the h*ll is share Fest anyway ? I guess they want all of the stuff so they can sell it and make a profit.Going by the actions I've heard of they are definitely not a christian organization.
Yes I brought dirty pots and pans home and was happy to wash them up.I am a writer so I found a lot of note book paper.And shampoo as well.In Franklin County and Ripley County , they have large item pick up days twice a year , anything set out belongs to no one and they would rather someone pick it up and make use of it.I agree with lady b ,you kids put free stuff by your door or advertise it on your lawn and if a citizen wants it go ahead and give it to them.You are helping humanity that are in need and helping the land fill by not having it dumped.Times are hard for the majority of people these days and anything helps.I know that a lot of the students live in other states and have to fly home and have to leave a lot of things behind.
If you are in favor of helping the green drive and stopping the earth from so much trash , then put out a sign Free Stuff and Don't put it on the curb.
ShareFest is a community event, and several different types of agencies participate, including churches. Please verify your statements before post judgmental and false comments. For more information about ShareFest, please visit http://muohio.edu/sharefest .

I am a third year college student at Miami University in Oxford and I would just like to say I will give my things to whoever I want and it will NOT be sharefest. I will burn all of my belongings Before they get them. I think most of us feel the same.
I am sorry that you would rather burn your items than help organizations that assist families and individuals in-need.

I encourage you to volunteer for ShareFest for a few hours to meet the various organizations and volunteers helping the community. For more information about ShareFest and volunteer opportunities, please visit http://muohio.edu/sharefest .

How does this help the poor ? when it was the poor trying to pick up the items themselves. People are in worse off financialy now then 2 or 3 years ago.Thrift stores are out to make money for themselves. When those people were picking up the cast offs they indeed were getting the benefits.Where and how do you give anything back to the communitie ? most people have only heard of you when school is out.No one that I know of heard about your free store !!!

I totally agree that oxford and surrounding communities are not benefiting from sharefest. And I don't mean hamilton either! All of the proceeds are going to united way and resource center which is limiting the people who are being helped. Who knows what the funds are exactly being used for anyway. They shouldn't be able to take all this extremely nice stuff the students are forced to donate to them and take them to areas like Hamilton. Leaving us in the area buying the trash from the thrift store once a year. Stuff that you couldn't give someone and their trying to make a buck from it. Items set out to the curb to give to others should be allowed. I have furnished my house and helped others with items I have gotten from around town. Now the sharefest prevents me from recieving items that me or others might truly need. Say No to Sharefest!
