Congratulations to the Lea School – The First Recyclebank Green School in the Country to Reach Its Fundraising Goal

Jan 23, 2012 10 years ago

A few weeks ago, we told you that the Lea School, at 47th & Locust, was selected as one of Recyclebank's Green Schools, eligible to receive funds to build six new raised bed gardens for students, parents, and teachers, greening their asphalt schoolyard. With your help, the Lea School was the first school in the country to reach its fundraising goal of $550! This is a clear indication of University City neighbors' commitment to sustainability, and thanks to everyone who donated their points to Lea for this wonderful project.

If you've got points to spare, a number of Philadelphia schools are still looking for point donations to help them reach their goal, including John Story Jenks Elementary, Anna Howard Shaw Middle School, C. W. Henry Elementary, James Rhoads Elementary, John Bartram High School, South Philadelphia High School and WB Saul High School. you can donate points until March 15th, so why not use some of your extra points to help these schools reach their goal? And if you still aren't signed up for the Philadelphia Recycling Rewards program, just stop by the UCD office at 3940 Chestnut St. to get registered on the spot.
