Happy Earth Day!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Colleen at 8:55 pm on Saturday, April 23, 2016

One of the things I love about my job is that I get to rescue items from the landfill. Items that appear to be trash may be able to be used by someone else, or may be able to be easily recycled.

I also get to help share donations with others in the community who benefit from the excess of others. I love seeing the staff and volunteers light up when they see how generous my clients are!

The link below contains many of the recycling and donation options available in Central Pa. It is a growing list to help you find homes for items that might not taken by Goodwill or Salvation Army, or in case you want to support other local charities.

I’m always adding to the list. Share with me some of your favorite donations or reycling locations!

Happy Earth Day!
