2017 Earth Day "Throw Down"
Make this your best Fundraiser while helping your Community and the Environment.
The 2017 Earth Day Event begins Monday April 17, 2017 and goes through Friday April 22, 2017.
Who Can Participate?
Every school or organization in Hartford, Tolland and Middlesex County will have the opportunity to participate in an event to help in the effort to keep Clothing (Textiles) & Shoes out of our Connecticut Landfills.
Special Request - Sleeping Bags
We have a special request to all participating schools. We are collecting sleeping bags for the homeless in Hartford and would appreciate your support.
Step 1 - Register
Registrations need to be received by March 31, 2017. Each school will register to hold a clothing and shoe collection drive during the week leading up to Earth Day April 22, 2017.
Step 2 - Hold Your Event
The school can hold the event on one day or they can collect the clothing for the entire week. Our trucks will come to your location and pick up the items collected.
Once the competition is completed we will tally up all the weights by school or organization. Each school or organization will receive a donation of $ .15/per pound for the clothing and shoes collected.
Everyone wins - Every school will receive money for the competition, the landfill has less textiles to process and the Charities of Hope Domestic Abuse and Homeless programs will benefit from the clothes collected.
The school or organization that collects the most will win an additional $ 150 prize.
