In the month of June my time was spent leading volunteers and sorting incoming donations at Global Links Penn Ave office. This month I added two new volunteer shifts to my schedule; Wednesday 10am-noon and 1pm-3pm. During these Wednesday shifts I lead volunteers in like-item sorting the categorized boxes that result from my Thursday macro-sorting volunteer shifts. June was also a month of recycling projects and events. I was tasked to research a more efficient way Global Links could deal with their recycling. I set up a meeting with a representative at Pittsburgh Recycling in Hazelwood which will occur in August. My hope is that this is the first step to diverting a significant amount of waste out of landfills. (Stay tuned for next month’s report for how this turns out!) I collected usable medical supplies and equipment at PRC’s Hard to Recycle collection event at Brashear High School and volunteered for waste management at the Pittsburgh Blues Festival.
