Sustainable Surplus Exchange (SSE) recently announced a new program called Success 4 Students. Each month SSE will collaborate with local high schools, community colleges, and universities to identify a student in need and provide them with items such as school supplies. The program recently helped a single mom in community college who was struggling to make ends meet and who didn’t have the supplies she needed to succeed in school. SSE provided her with a computer and a desk for her apartment. The program will accommodate up to four students per month to start.

SSE is a North County-based nonprofit organization with a warehouse in Vista that works to engage the community in environmental and economic sustainability by preventing waste from entering landfills through repurposing items for reuse. SSE supports over 400 local educational, charitable, military, and start-up organizations with free office supplies and other materials.
