This week for Earth Week, the Helping Hands Committee will collect textbooks in any condition and donate them to SCARCE (School and Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education). Current textbooks will be given to local schools for reuse; otherwise they will be recycled.
Please bring your used textbooks to either of the two drop box locations at the east and west entrances to the ground floor of Wilson Hall. If you have a large collection of textbooks and would prefer to take them directly to the storage area, bypassing the drop box, contact Teri Dykhuis at x3607.
If you are willing to help transfer books from the drop boxes to the storage area, transfer them from the storage area to vehicles or transport them to the SCARCE facility in Glen Ellyn, please contact Teri Dykhuis at x3607 or Sandra Charles at x4574.
The SCARCE mission is to “inspire people, through education, to preserve and care for the Earth’s natural resources while working to build sustainable communities.”
