Glass recycling brings in big donation for local school
April 27, 2023
3,125 pounds of glass was recycled on Saturday, April 15 at the Seeley Lake Community Foundation’s recycling and fundraising event.
$1,179 was collected in cash donations and was matched by local nonprofit, Charlie’s Helping Hands, who generously doubled all donations up to $1,000 that day.
A total of $2,179 was donated to Seeley Swan High School.
Over the years, the annual event, which is co-hosted by the Seeley Lake Community Foundation, and Recycle Works, has kept over 12,000 pounds of glass out of the landfill and raised over $5,500 for local schools.
Another recycling event will be hosted on Saturday, July 15 in Seeley Lake.
