“We are very fortunate to have someone so active in the nonprofit community join our team,” said SSE executive director Sue Prelozni.
“Our big WHY at McKinney Advisory Group is serving and helping our families and communities, and so when I heard about the incredible work Sue was doing with Sustainable Surplus Exchange, I knew that it was a way for me to give back that’s related to the real estate profession that I so much enjoy. SSE offers an excellent opportunity to help the environment by keeping waste out of landfills and to help our communities by providing a low-cost alternative for business-related equipment and furniture to nonprofits and startups, which allows the nonprofits more resources to fulfill missions and startups the funds to hire more employees. I am thrilled to be able to help SSE thrive.” – Charlie Copelan
