Do Some Good This Holiday Season
November 18, 2013
As you admire all the bright and shiny holiday lights decorating the houses of your friends and neighbors, do you ever wonder what to do with any broken, old strands of Christmas lights? Well, MCPL is helping you out by partnering with Southeast Enterprises to collect and recycle any unwanted Christmas lights. Visit any of our branches to donate your lights to this great project.
Southeast Enterprises' mission is to provide a safe work environment and challenging employment opportunities for citizens who have intellectual and developmental disabilities. This year they have joined over 165 participating schools, business, recycling centers, and community organizations. Building on the success of last year's program, they are hoping to collect and recycle over 34,000 pounds of holiday lights between November 17 and January 26.
Stop by your local branch to donate to this wonderful cause, and save some space in your attic and in the landfill!
