Free Electronics Recycling to Benefit Rotary Youth, May 18

Posted on 15. May, 2013 by in Community Services

The Door County Rotary Youth Interact will host its first electronics recycling event of the year on Saturday, May 18 at the Sturgeon Bay High School parking lot from 9 am – 2 pm.

e-cycle-keyboardBring in old monitors, TV sets, computer screens, cell phones, batteries or anything else electronic that may be sitting in your garage.  The event will be held at the Sturgeon Bay High School parking lot. All proceeds from this event will be donated to a global organization of the groups’ choice.

Rotary Youth Interact is a student lead organization that focuses on giving back to their community and the world. At the beginning of the year, the “interactors” set a goal to raise a certain amount of money that will be given to a global organization. It so happens that this year they choose to donate all their proceeds to Heifer International, an organization that gives third world families animals allowing them to become self-reliant. The interactors goal is to purchase an ark which will have a pair of each animal. The value of the ark is $5,000. Throughout the year they have had multiple fundraisers like Rotaraking, helping with the Shipyard Tours, Mr. Door County 2013 and lately, the electronics event.

The interactors will not be charging the public to drop off old electronics at this event.

“We are just looking for ways to raise more money and make a difference and hopefully our community will help us!” says Brandi Hernandez, Secretary of Rotary Youth Interact. Contact her with any questions… at hernandezbrandi28@yahoo.com or call 920.256.1795.
