Why A Property Fund?
First, we did it! After a year-and-a-half of renting our facility, we signed on the dotted line in November 2016 and bought 3 Rodeo Road! Generous support, grants, and a loan made it possible. We're ready to upgrade the place, but we also need to pay the mortgage every month.
GO Recycle has been up and running 3 days every week since July 2015. We currently recycle cardboard, newspaper, white paper, mixed paper, translucent plastic bottles (#1 & #2), aluminum, tin, mixed metals, and e-cycle. Our cardboard buyer in Wenatchee turns the material into apple pack trays. It’s always nice when the materials we recycle can be processed and used so locally. The GO Again home and building supply thrift shop focuses on gathering lumber, plumbing and electrical fixtures, pipe, wire, and wood and metal furnishings to sell at reasonable prices.
Our large yard has helped 2 fire relief groups--The Recovery Shed Program has a staging area, and we provide space for firewood storage for the Fire Relief and Recovery Network. We'll also partner with Okanogan County Community Action Council when they begin turning shipping containers into living spaces for homeless vets. We’re excited about this project for the way it reuses materials and helps our vets at the same time.
And we have other big plans, like developing a system to re-use glass locally by making a gravel product. This will take a lot of research and development to get under way, but it’s on our to do list.
You made Green Okanogan's GO Recycle and the GO Again thrift shop a reality by helping us purchase the property, and now your continued support will allow us to GO further in serving North Okanogan County.
Another simple way to help out is the Amazon Smile program where Amazon donates .5% of items purchased to non-profits--like Green Okanogan. It is simple to use. Just add "smile dot" before "amazon dot com" and pick Green Okanogan as your designated charity.
Green Okanogan is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, federal tax ID # 27-2613885. Your donation to the GO Property Fund is tax-deductible.
It's exactly the same as shopping regular Amazon (the prices are the same, if you have an account you sign in the same and have all your history there) but Amazon kicks in half-of-one-percent of the bill. Maybe not a fortune, but if you're shopping there anyway, why not have some of A's profits go to GO? Tell your family and friends outside the area, too! send them to smile.amazon.com/ch/27-2613885
Even easier than remembering to add "smile" to the address--try these browser extension that automatically change any amazon URL you might click to "smile.amazon.com" There's Smile Redirect for Firefox users and Smile Always extension for Chrome
