Community Forklift attracts visitors from all over the globe

Our Outreach & Education team loves giving tours to school groups, local leaders, real estate companies, professional associations, and others interested in social entrepreneurship, waste reduction, and the reuse movement.  Sometimes, we even get international visitors!

Last Wednesday, we hosted a group of inspiring leaders from a Global Women in Management workshop.  Our friends at PLAN International set up a tour of our warehouse so they could see how we turn “trash” into jobs and economic opportunities.  After the tour, they met with Director of Administration Mariam D’Eustachio, Director of Outreach & Education Ruthie Mundell, and Events & Marketing Coordinator Rachel Spiegelman to discuss the Forklift’s history, challenges, and growth.

We really enjoyed their insightful observations and questions!  It was an honor to meet amazing women who are building opportunities all over the world, in places as diverse as New Zealand, South America, Liberia, and Indonesia.

If you would like to  schedule a tour for your school or organization, please contact Events(at), or call our Outreach Team at 301-985-5180.
