Good stuff and fundraisers--Community Forklift (DC area)
Community Forklift is a building materials recovery and resale operation in Edmonston, Maryland, serving the Washington DC metropolitan area. (I am on the board.)
Please spread the word: we have TRUCKLOADS of landscaping materials & plants arriving this week at our warehouse. Starting Wednesday, we'll be selling them very cheaply, and donating to nonprofits & community gardens. More details below!
Also, if you haven't heard, we have two great events this month. Visit Community Forklift for more info.
• COCKTAILS FOR A CAUSE on Monday, Oct. 10th at The Passenger, near the Convention Center. Their "mixologists" are known for their great cocktails, and 10% of the proceeds will go to Community Forklift (we're hoping to buy a second truck, and to purchase & repair our warehouse).
• Forklift EXTRAVAGANZA, featuring the DC LADY ARM WRESTLERS: On Saturday, Oct. 22nd, have a wild night at our warehouse for only $10 a ticket. Enjoy the Eat Wonky food truck, adult beverages, DJ Booger and DJ One Heart Muzik, and a silent auction with thousands of dollars worth of prizes. It's gonna be hilarious - these ladies all have costumes & entourages, and really know how to entertain (come root for our Reuse Associate Kitty S., who will step into the ring as "Motown Mama!")
