Donna Sangwin, Founder / Executive Director of ReCreate
In 2008, Donna founded ReCreate, because she saw an opportunity to be a liason between businesses throwing away very usable "waste", and schools facing budget shortfalls for art and hands-on programming.  In the early years, Donna with the help of a grad student volunteer, took the program around to schools in our region.  ReCreate now has a staff of eight, and a large army of volunteers.  


ReCreate is currently recruiting for a Board Treasurer.
