Here at HCO 5520, we gathered up 6 boxes (300 totes) leftover from Conventions throughout the summer. I spoke to a represented at Second Harvest, where I was volunteering, and told them we were able to collect unbranded totes left over from a few conventions. They are super excited to get them! They have a local store in the back of the warehouse, where customers will come buy fresh baked goods as well get food donations. These will come in very handy for people to carry their items home. We are excited to contribute to their organization.
