The ReUse Community Fund grants people with demonstrated need store credits so that they can get the essential goods and services we offer. Community members will be able to apply for a ReUse Community Fund credit through referrals from human service agencies. Donations made to the ReUse Community Fund are matched 100% by Finger Lakes ReUse, doubling the value of every dollar donated.
Finger Lakes ReUse is committed to improving the quality of life here in our community by finding new ways to relieve poverty and promote equity through waste reduction. We are able to carry out this work thanks to the support of the community, and every dollar we earn through our sales and service fees goes directly into our programming and operating costs. We price our items at 50-90% below retail value to make them as affordable as possible, but we know that in times of crisis even the lowest-cost items can be out of financial reach.
We receive many requests for assistance each year, and we expect these requests to continue to increase. We want to be able to grant every request made by community members in need. Your donations can help us achieve this goal together. Learn more about the ReUse Community Fund on our website.
