In May 2016, Amazon@Penn opened in 1920 Commons, allowing students to connect their Amazon accounts to the on-campus delivery and shipping center in order to more easily ship and pick up packages. Recently, Amazon launched their Give Back Box program, which allows people to pack their empty Amazon boxes with household items they no longer need, print a free shipping label from, and easily donate the items to a local charity. Participants can drop off their boxes with the USPS or UPS to be sent to the closest charitable organization in need.
