Matteson, IL-(ENEWSPF)- St. Lawrence O’Toole School is facing off against Faith Comm United Methodist Youth Group from Xenia, OH in a “Recycling Rumble,” Feb. 13-Apr. 30, 2013, to raise money by recycling, and for the chance to earn cash and win an Apple iPad compliments of the national fundraising through recycling program FundingFactory.
Since 1999, O’Toole has raised $3,000.00 in cash and rewards by recycling empty laser and inkjet cartridges and used cell phones, iPods, MP3 players, GPS devices, and digital cameras with FundingFactory. FundingFactory matched St. Lawrence O’Toole against Faith Comm United Meth Youth Group because of their comparable recycling rate. The winning organization between the two will earn a 25 percent fundraising bonus in addition to the value of all recyclables sent into FundingFactory between Feb. 13 and Apr. 30, 2013. The top recycler among all nationwide match-ups will win an Apple iPad®.
“A little healthy competition goes a long way,” said Sean Michaels, co-president of FundingFactory. “Recycling Rumble is a fun, earth-friendly way to motivate the whole community to get involved in recycling and raising money for a worthy cause. In the end, we all win by making the world a cleaner place to live.”
