Our First Lego League (FLL) team is sponsoring a cell phone recycling drive as part of their team project for this year's competition, Trash Trek. This year's team is called "The Phone Fixing Vikings" and are exploring the problems with garbage and how to clean it up. The team will compete in early December against other teams in the region in a variety of areas. First Lego League teaches teamwork, engineering, programming, and project planning.
The team started their cell phone recycling drive on November 16th and will wrap it up on December 6th. If you would like to recycle a phone you will find drop boxes in the Parish Office, by the School Office and in the back of the church. This drive is sponsored by our FLL team in conjuction with EG Metals a local metal recycler. All proceeds from the recycling drive will be donated to St. Vincent de Paul. We hope you will consider helping both our FLL team and St. Vincent de Paul by donating your old cell phones.
