When the world shut down due to COVID-19, offices everywhere went dark, leaving countless desk doodads to collect dust. With the holiday season fast approaching, we thought, why not put them to good use instead? So we launched our very own virtual store—Terri & Sandy’s Pandemic Pop-Up Holiday Shoppe—to hawk our coworkers’ forgotten trinkets. Items were priced between $10 and $10,000, and their combined sales helped to feed more than 33,000 New Yorkers through local non-profit City Harvest. In all, we turned trash into treasure and helped make one of the most difficult holiday seasons on record a little more merry and bright.
