ReuseFest ReTurns on August 3
Summer is upon us.  Did you finish your spring cleaning and realize you have a ton of stuff that you no longer need?  Wondering what in the world to do with it?  Well we have the answer:  come to the second annual ReuseFest on Saturday August 3rd at the Goodwill Workforce Development Center in Lawrenceville!

ReuseFest is a one-day collection event for materials destined for reuse that will take place on August 3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.at the Goodwill center located at 118 52nd Street, Pittsburgh 15201.  This year’s event includes many great local nonprofit organizations including Global Links, Construction Junction, Off the Floor, Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse, Goodwill, FreeRide and the Animal Rescue League.  All of these great local non-profits will be collecting materials for FREE for reuse including: bikes, medical supplies, usable building materials, gently used furniture and mattresses, clothing and household goods, art supplies, pet carriers and much much more.  All materials donated will be reused in some fashion, whether resold, repurposed or given to those in need in our region and around the world.
