When Erich spotted good furniture on the side of the road, he saw money in the trash. His program collected $17,000 worth of unwanted items from students leaving the UCLA campus for the summer, preventing waste, promoting reuse, and supporting the National Council of Jewish Women’s programs to assist women, children, and families in need.

One person can make a big difference in the world...I strive each day to be a better person, care a little more, problem solve a little smarter, and lead a little better to make a difference in my community and spread the message of tikkun olam.
