Buffalo Valley Electronic Recycling Event

By Paul Ploumis

The Kiwanis Club of Buffalo Valley/Lewisburg is continuing its long-standing, electronic recycling event as a fund-raiser to support children’s educational, medical, and recreational services.  Within the past few months this club distributed a total of 200 child development booklets to the Public Library for Union County, two nursery schools, the Summit Learning Center, and the Children’s Museum to give to the parents of infants to pre-kindergarten children; established and funded four children’s little libraries that are located in local laundromats and at the Miller Center in the community; assisted with Camp SETABAID (a camp for children with diabetes); provided funding for bicycle helmets for children; supported the Heiter Center; and, provided three scholarships to recent high school graduates.

During the recycling event the Kiwanis Club of Buffalo Valley/Lewisburg will accept unwanted electronic items such as cell phones, radios, other hand held electrical devices, computers, cameras, flat screen TVs, electronic game consoles and printers as a fundraising project to benefit the children of our region.  The items will be accepted for a small fee at the East Buffalo Township Recycling Center on Fairground Road in Lewisburg from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 20th.  Fees for the items are as follows:
