Electronic Clutter

How many of us feel we have to have the newest of everything? The latest Blackberry, iPod, DVD player, GPS? How about your kids? The coolest cell phone (which changes every week), the most recent scientific calculator (“If I’m going to take the SAT/Regent/AP Exam, I can’t make do without the best!”), the best camera (“But Maaaa! Everyone has a camera with color selection now! How can you say no? It’s so not fair!”) and all the rest. So we’re left sitting with junk. The cables, the software CDs, the rechargeable batteries. The charger, the packaging, the accessories.

Now, there’s something you can do with it. Donate it! If you send all your little gadgets (I’ll list them below) to the right places, I’ll get credit towards whatever my school needs! From books and educational¬† material, to sports equipment, from technology to supplies, as long as we have the credit for it, we can get it delivered directly to school, at no charge to us!

Ways to donate:

Old cell phones can be dropped off at: Shalsheles Bais Yaakov ATT: Morah Mamela. I will take care of shipping it out.  Hours: M-Th: 8:30-4:45, F: 8:30-12

The following electronics ONLY may also be dropped at the same location:

Old GPS systems, scientific/graphic calculators, DVD players, MP3 players, digital cameras
