Reconsidered Goods September 2019 newsletter

August collection totals: 10 tons of donations, which were diverted from the landfill into a life of reuse.

September is a big month for us. We are expanding!! RG has rented the building next door to us to expand our outreach and education programming. We are working hard on making a sustainable events space for our events and the space can also be rented by others. It's going to be a very fun and creative space that is meant to inspire and give new opportunities for us to further our mission of creative reuse. Our open house is set for October 12th!!!!

And we need some helpers for the new building! Below is a link from Sign Up Genius that has 2 options for workdays. If you want to be involved with this fun project to help us hit our October opening date, please considered signing up.

We have a few specific items we could use as donations for the new space:

-White interior house paint

-Bright colors of interior house paint
-Any electrical or plumbing advising by professionals
- Wood pallets
-1 Day use of a lift or cherry picker
- Large old stereo speakers
-File cabinets
-wooden chairs
-Overhead video projector and sound system
-Folding tables (can be the older heavy ones)
- A van (just throwing that out there...)
-Cardboard or plastic barrels for Make & Take

If you have any of these items, please bring them by the store. 
Thanks everyone!!

**We are always looking for store volunteers. If you are interested or know a child 14 years and up that needs service learning hours, please visit our website and fill out a volunteer form**
