Research shows that asking people to make a commitment to recycle actually builds motivation that leads to lasting changes in behavior. By asking people to “Take the Pledge”, you are joining thousands of America Recycles Day (ARD) organizers across the country working to increase recycling in their communities by motivating their businesses, families, friends, neighbors and co-workers to recycle more. Together, we can, motivate Americans to recycle more.
“Take the Pledge”
A partnership of the Mocksville Woman’s Club and the Town of Mocksville
A paper document shredding event has been scheduled to promote recycling awareness. Shred South will be onsite at Junker’s Mill Stage area, November 15th from noon until 2:00 PM to commercially shred paper documents.
Shredding outdated personal documents, bank statements, insurance policies, etc. helps to eliminate identity fraud and our environment by recycling paper. Help support America Recycles Day and become more aware of recycling and assisting our environment. Not only will you become more informed, but you will lessen your clutter/collection of paper while making it reusable again.
Backpack Buddies and Bookbags of Hope Nutrition Programs to Benefit
There is no charge for the paper shredding, however, donations for shredding will be accepted to benefit Davie High School “Hunger Fighters” nutrition program. Backpack Buddies and Book Bags of Hope nutrition programs assist with needs for students in elementary and middle schools, however these efforts should not cease just because a student is in high school. This is where “Hunger Fighters”, a group of Davie High School faculty members and students provide food to other high school students in need within the school system food for the weekend. A minimum estimated cost per student per weekend is less than $245 per year; however this is based on, oatmeal, cereal, Easy Mac, Ramon Noodles, Canned Meat, Canned Soup, Nabs, Granola Bars and apples. Any student that is confronted with not enough to eat or nothing available to eat will have more difficulty focusing and learning.
The Mocksville Woman’s Club is determined to improve this nutritional selection for the “Hunger Fighters” to assist students at Davie High School and challenge others to do the same. Donations will help promote balancing healthy minds for learning with nutritionally balanced needs. The Mocksville Woman’s Club, is a 501(C) (3) organization of volunteers, donations will be tax deductible.
