December 2020 - Community Update

Dear TRRA Community,

With Thanksgiving now in the rearview mirror, the TRRA staff are ramping up for the holiday season! TRRA TV will be returning soon, we have some great holiday gift items available below along with some other seasonal updates.

A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to our Annual Campaign so far. We are incredibly grateful for your support and engagement throughout the year and look forward to emerging from this pandemic better, faster, and more resilient than we entered it. None of this would be possible without your support and we thank you!

I hope that everyone has a safe and happy holiday season.

Be Well,

The TRRA Green Crew is holding a water bottle holiday sale! You may remember from the summer that the first major initiative undertaken by the TRRA Green Crew is to eliminate single-use plastic water bottles from campus. TRRA branded reusable water bottles are the first step towards achieving this goal.

Each bottle is made of sturdy clear plastic, a flip cap, and will have the TRRA logo as well as a line on which to write your name.

All proceeds raised during this campaign will be used to complete additional sustainability initiatives across both campuses.
