Recycling for a Good Cause
There are a couple of efforts currently going on in the New River and Roanoke Vallies that are helping a young child in need of a liver transplant.
As this article explains:
"Ian was born with Biliary Atresia and is in need of a life-saving transplant"
The communities are helping raise money to help offset the $100,000 cost of the transplant.
My company is actually a sponsor of a community yardsale that will take place on June 10th at Pathway Christian Academy. All proceeds from the items donated to this yard sale are going toward the trust fund (which is being funded by COTA) for Baby Ian.
Another sponsor, CCS, Inc., is also collecting old cell phones and inkjet/laser cartridges to recycle. Go to these sites to get more information on how you can recycle your items to help Baby Ian.
