Local Fundraising Efforts

The Gateway Regional High School (Huntington, MA) Cheerleaders are raising money to help send the team to summer cheerleading camp and will be participating in the EcoPhones fundraising program by collecting the above mentioned items. There is a collection bin in the main entrance foyer of the Gateway Middle/High School complex to deposit donations. Collection will run through the end of the school year.

    My coworkers are collecting yogurt containers for their Relay for Life team. It’s a program through Terracycle. Terracycle also has other fundraising programs – collecting energy bar wrappers and drink pouches, for example.
