Member Appreciation
Join us on August 1 as we celebrate what makes us unique and champion what brings us together. 

This month, we’re partnering with our neighbors at Beverly J. Martin Elementary School to bring much needed supplies into the classroom. We’re also raising funds for our Student Credit Union, which introduces children to good saving and spending habits by operating their own “in-school” credit union. And GreenStar will be here talking about healthy food for all ages. 

At Alternatives, we do better together. Learn more and get involved by signing up for our Members Quarterly newsletter.

The Finger Lakes ReUse Center was awarded The Jeff Furman Award for Social Responsibility in Business at Alternatives’ 2012 annual meeting, with Executive Director Diane Cohen accepting the award. Cohen expressed her thanks: “We will hang the award prominently and proudly in our Reuse Center, and as we grow, we will continue to use this as a beacon, to continue our efforts to maximize our capacity to provide opportunities and relieve hardship. We know we are in solidarity with Alternatives on these issues. We're a young organization with a mission to enhance community, economy, and environment through reuse, and a priority to serve our community well. Receiving this award has been an honor and an affirmation.”
