Because we’re mission driven to rescue beautiful, used stuff from a downward spiral toward the landfill, the intention behind every Recycle Drive is to provide a simple way for you to clear specific, manageable clutter from your home, and in so doing, to connect hard to donate items with organizations who need and use them to improve lives and living experiences.
In most cases, we focus on gathering and redistributing items that might wind up in the waste stream if they were dropped off at a more traditional donation center.

Last summer, two chess sets made appearances on Hennepin Avenue as part of the ‘5 to 10 on Hennepin’ project – an effort to bring more people to this area of downtown. People of all walks of life gathered to check(mate) each other!
And so, for this month’s Reuse Drive, Junket is partnering with theHennepin Theatre Trust to source and share the gift of community via your unneeded chess sets. Parts and incomplete sets are welcome: we can match them up , and having extra parts and pieces on hand is wise when these sets will be in regular use out in the world. We’ll have a Trust staff member, who works on Made Here (#MadeHereMN) at the shop from 1-4PM to talk about the program and accept your donations.
The purpose of Junket’s monthly Reuse Drives is to help our community members incrementally declutter — while helping their unneeded stuff get into the hands of others who would find it legitimately helpful.

When: Sunday, May 21, 1PM-4PM
