Volunteer Spotlight: Lisa Rood

ECRT Volunteer Turns Bags into Dollars for ECRT!

 

ECRT is blessed with so many generous volunteers who give their time and talents to this wonderful project. One extraordinary example is former Town of Boston Supervisor, Lisa Rood who turned her horse-loving hobby into a fundraiser for ECRT. In anticipation of the NYS plastic bag ban, Lisa began saving and collecting sturdy horse and animal feedbags. She sewed them into reusable totes and sold the bags at the Boston NY Equine Collaborative International Spring Meet Up on March 14th. Lisa has continued to sell these beautiful bags from her home and has donated the entire proceeds (over $250) to ECRT!

 

Thank you Lisa for your time and generosity, and for bringing us that much closer to our goal of having a 27 mile recreational trail in the Southtowns!
