Event Description

At the end of the academic year, Yale will have several hundred mattresses available for donation to local charities and organizations. These mattresses are all in good condition, and are all twin extra-long sized (39" wide x 80" long). They do not come with bed frames, pillows, sheets, etc.

Although the mattresses will not be available until the end of May, we are contacting you now so that we can get an estimate of how many mattresses we will be able to donate to local charities, and how many mattresses we will need to send elsewhere. As this process can take some time, and since we’d like to donate to as many local organizations as possible, your prompt response is greatly appreciated.

If you are interested in receiving any of these mattresses, please use the following link to send us a request: (http://tinyurl.com/yalemattresses) After we have received your request, we will contact you to coordinate a pick up date and time. Pick-ups can be scheduled any time from May 26th to June 8th, however, if these dates do not accommodate your needs, we can try to arrange an alternate time. You will need to make your own arrangements for transporting the mattresses from our New Haven campus to your destination, but there will be Recycling employees on site to help with loading.

Should you have any problems with the link, or questions about the mattresses, please contact audrey.huntington@yale.edu.
Sincerely,
Yale Recycling

American Banker Reports on LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund

A recent article in American Banker describes the why and how of LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund - a means to direct private capital to Black banks, CDFIs and other minority businesses. The $50 million from Netflix and Costco seeding the fund, with more in the pipeline, is a signal of a widespread “social-consciousness awakening that [the wealth gap] is a problem and its sources are systemic racism,” explains George Ashton, LISC EVP and the fund’s manager, in the story.

LISC, with Top Housing Groups, Calls for Emergency Rental Relief

In a statement issued today, LISC joins with Enterprise, National Housing Trust, Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future, Housing Partnership Network, Housing Assistance Council and Leading Age to urge federal action on rental assistance that will protect residents and affordable housing providers affected by the pandemic. “Relief is overdue,” the groups warn, “and we can’t afford to wait any longer.”

A Pledge to Keep Small Businesses Open for Business

A $15 million donation from Wells Fargo, part of their Open for Business Fund, will help LISC match flexible Kiva crowdfunded loans for entrepreneurs of color across the U.S. Our pre-Covid collaboration with Wells and Kiva in Puerto Rico and other disinvested places has proven the transformative benefits for individuals, families and regional economies when small businesses get fast access to capital in a crisis.
