The CLYNK for Schools Recycling Challenge is On!

WHAT: 
For every $1 we raise by CLYNKing during the Challenge, Hannaford will give us a 50¢ match. At the end of the period, the top two schools who recycle the most will win an additional $1,500 and $1,000 cash prize from CLYNK.

WHEN: 
January 14 - March 21

WHY: 
The money we raise through CLYNK goes DIRECTLY to our students' outdoor programming: specifically the 5th & 6th grades trips to the Boston Freedom Trail and Chewonki, respectively. Ultimately, each class needs approximately $12,000 to fund these activities.

WHO: 
Hannaford has expanded its program to include schools New York state so the competition will be even tougher this year.

HOW:
Each student received a CLYNK instruction packet with 2 bags before the holiday break. Additional CLYNK bags are available (1) in the hallways outside your child's classroom, (2) under the volunteer name badges at the PC lobby, or (3) contact Kristina Justh for delivery/questions at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thank you for supporting this program and HAPPY CLYNKING!
