Do Good: Reuse-Driven Partnerships

This series of lightning talks will bring together nonprofit reuse organizations that provide community services and the corporate partners with whom they have developed in-kind donation programs. Each pair will explore the meaningful positive outcomes of in-kind donation programs for both donor businesses and recipient organizations. Going beyond waste reduction, these talks will highlight impactful community programming that has been driven by in-kind donations, demonstrating how and why such cross-sector donation-based partnerships have the potential to improve our cities.
