Boys & Girls recycling
The Boys & Girls Club of Juneau announces the launch of a community wide mobile-device recycling campaign. Spearheaded by the Torch Club - a character and leadership program for Boys & Girls Clubs members aged 11 to 13 - the Partnership for the Planet campaign will focus on enhancing the community's existing waste reduction efforts and educating citizens about the importance of properly recycling used mobile devices such as cell phones, pagers and PDA's (personal digital assistants).
The Juneau Boys & Girls Club, located at 8825 Mallard Dr., is one of many Clubs nationally that is participating in the Mobile-Device Recycling Project. Staples, Inc., which has recently made a three-year commitment through Staples Foundation for Learning, Inc., to support the growth and expansion of the Torch Club Program, is sponsoring the Partnership for the Planet National Torch Club Project in Clubs across the country.
The Juneau Club is open Monday through Friday from 2:30 to 7 p.m. during the school year and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the summer. Club programs emphasize education and career enhancement, character and leadership development, health and life skills, the arts, sports, fitness and recreation.
