To purchase and keep on hand, the necessary housekeeping supplies, and paper products for the Custodial Services department.
To provide a resource for critical maintenance parts, and health and safety related items that may be needed immediately in an emergency situation.
To supply the basic needs of the various administrative and academic departments.
To provide a Central Receiving area for delivery of shipments by common carrier trucks which are too large to deliver to many buildings on campus.

To provide storage services for departmental booklets, pamphlets, and other materials necessary to fulfil the mission of the college.
To help save college budgetary resources, by providing a venue for college departments to send surplus, but still serviceable furniture and other equipment, to be recycled for use by other departments.
