Recycling Mission Complete

Two volunteer crews spent May 17 and 19 on a Recycling Mission! Anne Arundel Community College was planning to demolish a building, and chalkboards and desks were meant for the throwaway pile. Maryland Branch said we would take them to send to Liberia and India. The first volunteer crew of 5 spent Thursday taking 46 chalkboards off the classroom walls, as well as rescuing several manual pencil sharpeners. Saturday, another crew of 9 men (including 3 midshipmen from the Naval Academy) transported 270 desks from the college classrooms to the Maryland branch warehouse. We are THANKFUL for our volunteers!
