The City is cleaning out supply closets and before throwing items away or recycling them, it’s trying to find them a second home first – either in another City work group or with a local non-profit. For the last several years, the City has held an annual supply-swap. It helps reduce office supply costs, brings awareness to making prudent office supply purchases, promotes inter-departmental teamwork and shows respect for the Earth’s limited resources. Local businesses are invited to join the City’s efforts and donate any unwanted but usable office items on Friday, Feb. 3 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. On Monday, Feb. 6, following the internal event, local non-profit organizations (with proof of local, non-profit status) are invited to "shop" from remaining items from 1:30 to 4 p.m. and take whatever they can make use of at no cost. Typical supplies include 3-ring binders, printer cartridges, organizational materials, type writers, overhead projectors, microfiche machines and professional development materials. Furniture will not be available. Questions? Contact Cheryl Callahan at 385-5543.
