WasteNOT! Frederick was pleased to be a sponsor of the recent local community event, “Clutch the Future” a purse auction and gala. This very successful event raised $25,000 that benefitted the Frederick Community College scholarship program for those who cannot afford to go to college, and the Frederick Women to Women mentoring program!
The organizers of Clutch the Future took donations of gently used (or new) purses to be auctioned. In addition to our sponsorship, WasteNOT! Frederick members have donated several purses to be reused.
Since WasteNOT! Frederick’s mission is to educate citizens about diverting solid waste in an environmentally sound and economically responsible manner, emphasizing reduction, reuse, recycling, and composting we were proud to help with the success of this community fundraiser.
