San Diego County Supervisors Support SSE

Three San Diego County Supervisors continued to support SSE and its mission to serve community organizations with repurposed items.
Supervisors Bill Horn, Dave Robert and Greg Cox granted $14,500 through the Community Enhancement program.  The funds are earmarked for Sustainable Surplus’ ENGAGE! San Diego program.

ENGAGE! is an innovative program which magnifies SSE’s involvement with local businesses, their
employees and the community.  It is a reuse/recycle campaign that fosters corporations’ social responsibility through the donation of items for repurposing, as well as engages their employees in volunteerism and sustainability.

“We accept everything from office supplies to furniture, computers and lab equipment,” said executive director Sue Prelozni.  All items are redirected back into community schools, nonprofits and start-up organizations.
