Back-to-School BYOB a Great Success

You know summer is ending when the Back to School BYOB is happening!
And it was a great success!
We had 175 people register and we went through 8 palettes of office supplies -
THANKS to Milton's Bakery, we had organic chips to give out, along with super nice reusable shopping bags.  Many teachers used them to fill up with supplies.
Thanks to all our terrific volunteers - BYOB continues to be a winner!

SSE Adds Two Students to Success Program

Sustainable Surplus aided two more students in its Success 4 Students program by giving them computer set ups including a PCU, monitor, keyboard and mouse.
"We chose two students who are enrolled in the TRIO program at Palomar College," said executive director, Sue Prelozni.Students are chosen based upon their need and status in school.
One recipient, Autumn, is in her first year in college, and is financially on her own. "Having access to a reliable computer will help me spend less time on campus and give me a stable means to complete my assignments," she mentioned.

The other recipient, Eric, will be working on his third Associates degree in Fall 2017 with plans to attend UC Riverside next year. He participates in many campus clubs including the Native America club, MECHA, Muslim student Alliance and the Associated student government where he was a delegate since 2011.
