We are continuing this year with a fundraising program that is good for our team and good for our planet. Together with the THINK RECYCLE program, we are collecting used inkjet and laser print cartridges as well as used cell phones and digital cameras, and turning them into CASH for our Booster Club! Bring your used cartridges, cameras and phones to the collection box in Coach Filipelli's classroom (Rm. 251) or to the POOL office, where they will be packed and sent to Greentec. The items will be recycled and Greentec will provide funds for each qualifying phone, camera and cartridge collected.

Plus, for every 24 items collected, THINK RECYCLE sponsors the planting of a tree in partnership with American Forests. There is no cost to you or to us for this program. Even the shipping is prepaid!! So bring in your cartridges and old cell phones and cameras today!! Also, if you have a business and would like to place a collection box there, please email the Booster Club, at bobcataquatics@gmail.com and we will be happy to provide a box for you.
