Support the Literacy Plus program
Submitted By City of Hayward
Everyone knows recycling is good for the environment but it is also good for Literacy Plus, Hayward Public Library's adult literacy program, which is partnering with Planet Green, a recycling company that pays for old mobile phones and used inkjet cartridges. We need the community's help.
Each spent cartridge could earn the Literacy Plus program up to $5. Old cell phones can fetch up to $40. One phone might not seem much but if co-workers, friends and family band together, everyone can go green and raise money for a good cause.
Taking part is easy - simply drop off used inkjet cartridges (inkjet ONLY) and old cell phones at Literacy Plus/Hayward Public Library 835 C Street, Hayward. Cell phone batteries and even cell phone chargers can be included.
Public participation in this recycling campaign will raise greatly needed funds for the Literacy Plus program. Let's work together, one cartridge and cell phone at a time, to protect the planet and raise money for a worthwhile cause.
Literacy Plus is looking for volunteer tutors to assist adults who wish to improve their basic literacy skills so they can achieve their goals, increase their knowledge and develop their potential.
New tutor orientation will be held on August 29, September 13 and again on September 14, 2011. The next FREE training class begins September 17, 2011. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.
