BYOB Becomes Monthly Event
Due to the popularity and donations of local companies, the BYOB (Bring-Your-Own-Box) event will be a monthly event through summer. “As long as we have the corporate support and supplies coming in, we will have this event monthly,” says CEO Sue Prelozni.
The Valentine’s BYOB was a huge success. Over 100 boxes of free office supplies and oodles of desk-top organizers were given to attendees. While participants are visiting the warehouse, they are also able to see the inventory and purchase whatever they need for their organization. “We donned white boards, office chairs, bookcases and file cabinets at this event,” adds Prelozni.
The most popular item: 3-ring binders. The longest distance attendee was from Tecate Christian School. Diane Lyles, Vice-Principal, said that the savings more than made up for the trip. “We really appreciate the generosity of Sustainable Surplus” and its donors.
The next BYOB will be March 12. Stay tuned for details.
