Favorite Memories from 2011

We asked the DRN team to share some of their favorite moments from the past year and here are a couple.

"My favorite moment was seeing firsthand the fabulous structures built with the used lumber we gifted to Corazon; room additions to a clinic." Paula Wise.

"One of my highlights was a potluck at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Gardena that I happened into a couple of weeks back.  While dropping off a furnace from one of our Brentwood projects (I suppose that was my contribution to the potluck!) I was invited to sit down and enjoy some great homemade dishes with the folks at Habitat.  It was great to look out over the many items from our projects dispersed across the ReStore’s floor and know that our efforts help support this important organization and its many fine people." Myles McGray

Wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy and RePurposeful New Year!

Heading out to a the bar in Los Angeles? Why not reduce your carbon footprint while you’re at it? Riding Green is a newer grassroots environmental movement in Los Angeles that has come up with a way for bar goers to not only reduce their carbon footprint, but their bar tab, as well! The organization has teamed up with various establishments throughout the city that will feature different promotions for bar goers participating in the Riding Green movement. The goal of Riding Green is to encourage people to take public transportation which reduces our carbon footprint. As the organization grows, they hope to expand partnerships and bring awareness to the environment. You can visit Riding Green’s website to learn more and find out how you can get involved.
