Green Office Free Store

CEE & Engineering Outreach's Green Office Team's came together over the past couple months to collect clothing items for our first ever FREE STORE! This event took place March 5th at 11:30am and we had a crowd by 11:15am. It was so nice to see everyone come by to find new treasures for their closet.

We wanted to reduce the impact of the fast fashion industry while giving our students the opportunity to save money as well. A win win situation!

Thank you to everyone who donated, supported, and shopped at our free store.
