Swap Your Stuff: new Dawson community Yammer channel
As moving season approaches for many, it’s a good time to let you know that there is a new Yammer group for the Dawson community called Swap Your Stuff- Dawson College. College Nurse Julie Gosselin created it as her final project for her Sustainable Happiness course this year.
“It's basically an online platform to help people find, donate or swap their gently used stuff. Everything has to be free and it is meant to encourage solidarity and reuse amongst Dawson College community members, both staff and students,” Julie explained.
