Milford Cub Scout Pack 722 Going Green

j0433860.pngj0422352.jpgSince the Boy Scout of America’s inception in 1910, members have learned to live the principles of the Scout Oath and Law through community services and “helping other people at all times.” With that history in mind, the BSA has developed a service initiative  Good Turn for America.
Cub Scout Pack 722, based at Orchard Hills School Milford Ct is Going Green by collecting Recyclable Ink cartridges, cell phones, and Toner cartridges for the Good Turn For America Program.

There are collection boxes at OHS School on Marino Drive in Milford and St Agnes Church 400 Merwin Ave Woodmont CT.

All profits from the effort benefit Scouts in the Wepawaug Valley of the CT Yankee Council.

Some area businesses in Woodmont section of Milford are helping us out now like Edward Jones Financial, MilfordBank, and The News Den.

Please check here for the cartridges that we are currently collecting.  Or visit Pack 722 for more information and click on go green.

If anyone has any questions or locates a large amount of ink cartridges, toner, or cell phones please contact Edward Abbazia directly at edward.abbazia@gmail.com .
