Green Apple Day of Service: Office Supply Donation Drive

Do you REALLY need 6 bags of rubber bands? How about that industrial-sized box of promotional items? And really, when was the last time you used those blank CDs? Does your computer even have a disc drive anymore?

On Friday, September 26, join us by participating in the USGBC National Green Apple Day of Service by partnering with Learning from Scratch to collect excess office supplies for use in art and education. Learning From Scratch is a local nonprofit who collects and redistributes supplies to school districts who express a need. Please do not purchase items for donation, rather collect unused items from your home or office to donate.

It’s time to do something you can feel good about, and get some prime office real estate back in the process.

To donate and/or volunteer to transport donated items, please sign up here.
