Do Good Accelerator Launches Issue Roundtable Series, featuring nonprofit and social innovation leaders

Join us for lunch to learn from an expert about sustainable practices and recycling. The kick-off issue awareness roundtable will feature Ruthie Mundell, Outreach and Education Director, Community Forklift, a nonprofit reuse center for home improvement supplies that specializes in reducing construction waste through recycling. The organization picks up donations of unwanted and salvaged building materials throughout the metro DC region and makes the building materials available to the public at low cost.

Mundell and her team are responsible for planning community events, working with partners and volunteers, providing material grants to local nonprofits and neighbors in need, and advocating for reuse and the green economy. She has been with Community Forklift since it opened in 2005, and has seen the organization grow to 50 employees. Ruthie also serves on the board of the national Building Materials Reuse Association.

This series is designed to provide continued learning opportunities, encourage discussion on social issues and enable students to learn from leaders in the nonprofit and social innovation fields. This event is a can’t miss opportunity for students interested in local nonprofits, sustainability, reuse, and recycling.
