ReUse Week wrap-up

June 23, 2009

ReUse Week 2009 in Portland, Oregon, led by Commissioner Nick Fish, was a success.

Kristy Wood, Executive Director of Community Warehouse, reports that the Warehouse collected enough ReUse Week donations to help 34 area families. (She also notes that City employees out-donated County folks, although only by the barest of margins.) Kristy tells us that for the first time in two months, the Warehouse is full. 

Thanks to all - citizens of Portland along with City and County employees - for your generosity in this extraordinary effort to give items new life within our community!

"I believe we will continue to see donations throughout the summer as a result of this effort," Kristy writes. "We also received some donations for the other organizations and made quite a few referrals to Free Geek and Rebuilding Center. Thanks again for your friendship and excellent efforts."
