Recycling Program Over $184,000 Raised for local charities

Recycle For A Reason is a toner and electronics recycling program at Garvey's Office Products. Each quarter, we will pool all of our empty toner cartridges and donated electronics together to raise money for local charitable organizations and keep them out of landfills. Individually the rebate on recycled cartridges and electronics is not much, but when accumulated over time, it can make a difference! In order to accomplish this goal of raising money for charity, we have set forth guidelines for what we can and cannot collect. To view guidelines, click here. In order to keep this program viable and be able to raise fund for these local charities, we ask that we pick-up recycling when we are dropping off an office supply order to you.

As you may know, we use the program to raise funds for some wonderful local charities. In the past seven years, Garvey's has been able to raise over $184,000 for local charities and we hope to continue to grow this program.

 

In 2015, we have raised money for:

1st Qtr: $9,833.92

The Resurrection Project

2nd Qtr: TBA

3rd Qtr: TBA

4th Qtr: TBA

 

At the end of the 1st quarter, Garvey's Office Products presented a check to The Resurrection Project (TPR) for $9,833.92 on behalf of our Recycle for a Reason program. The Resurrection Project's mission is to is to build relationships and challenge people to act on their faith and values to create healthy communities through organizing, education, and community development. TRP’s real estate development work creates new units of affordable housing for area families. And while the impact in helping a family secure a safe, affordable, quality home can’t be measured, the impact on the surrounding communities can be appreciated in seeing how the physical environment is transformed. The physical development work TRP pursues has left an indelible mark on its target neighborhoods, turning empty lots, blighted structures, and boarded-up buildings into new community assets.

Let's continue the momentum into the second quarter of 2015 and see if we can top our results! During the second quarter, we will be collecting empty toner cartridges and donated electronics for: Chicago Zoological Society Brookfield Zoo. The Chicago Zoological Society is a private nonprofit organization that operates Brookfield Zoo on land owned by the Forest Preserves of Cook County. The Chicago Zoological Society's mission to inspire conservation leadership by connecting people with wildlife and nature. For more information, visit https://www.czs.org/landing.aspx/

 

It's a win/win situation, and it's never too late to start. Simply collect your cartridges and give them to your Garvey's driver whenever it's convenient. Be sure to check back often to see the latest updates and quarterly results.
