Ready to throw your cell phone against the living room wall? Had it will your iPods and ready to drive over your digital camera with a cement truck? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions you need to donate your outdated electronics and purchase new ones.
I have a much better suggestion. Donate them t the Rim of the World Education Foundation. Now only will you get “rid” of them to move onto to something new but you’ll be support Rim students and schools and you’ll be helping the environment…..all at the same time. That doesn’t happen very often!
All donated cell phones, iPods and digital cameras will b recycled at this fundraiser and the money that is generated is used by the wonderful organization, the Rim Education Foundation, to support their mini-grant program for local teachers. Each year the Rim Ed Foundation awards thousands of dollars worth of mini-grant programs to classroom teachers in the Rim of the World Unified School District. The awards are only given in the Rim School District. The slogan for the fundraising project is “Help Our Students and Schools” because the items taken to the school are recycled and the district receives the money. Cell phones,iPods and digital cameras are all welcome. district office in Blue Jay.
The funds that are generated from the donated items are used by the Rim Education Foundation to support the Mini-grant program for teachers as well as AVID and other educational programs in the Rim Schools. Each year the Rim Ed Foundation dispenses thousands of dollars to teachers through their mini-grant program and they fund many other programs to help students.
Donation boxes can be found at each of the school sites as well as the district office in Blue Jay on Hwy. 189.
