For the past few years, we have worked closely with nonprofits to understand how and why they select certain products. Initially, this was to choose the best products for our online collection drives – exploring the decision making process of picking the right goods under tight cost constraints. Over time, we have met with many vendors and reviewed a lot of products. The result is a network of vendors we trust and respect – those who are also socially minded and interested helping those in need. Most importantly, these vendors offer a set of affordable, quality products – these goods meet a minimum quality level that maximizes longevity and usefulness given their low cost. Although we continue to evaluate new vendors ongoing, we have recruited core group of suppliers who are reliable, dependable, thoughtful, and a pleasure to work with.
