I am part of an e-waste fundraiser being put on by the Pacific Boosters to raise money for the Pacific LAPD Cadet Program. You may already know about the program, but if not, it’s a leadership program for students ages 9 -21. It’s pretty cool and has turned many a kid’s life around. It’s free for kids to attend as long as they maintain a certain grade average. Read more about the program here.
Here’s how the fundraiser works: if you have any old cell phones, tablets, laptops, TVs, monitors, and the like that you don’t want and are around, bring them this Saturday to event. To make it super easy, we are offering a drive-through at the Pacific LAPD station .. 7:30 – 2PM.
If you can’t come to the station Saturday, we are collecting phones and tablets (only) at two
locations (Covenant Presbyterian Church & Control Printing) Mondays – Fridays, until April 30th.
I’ll also be at the Westchester Farmers Market tomorrow (Wednesday) collecting them.
If it’s helpful, here are links to pdf’s of two flyers:
This one is just for Saturday.
This one talks about all ways to support the fundraiser.
Thanks in advance for any assistance! Anything you can do to support the Cadets is greatly appreciated.
