Spring, Easter, and even SUMMER breaks are upon us, and we want to share with you a helpful tool for keeping collections up at school during these breaks. The “School Break Collection Challenge” will help keep your collections on track even when you’re out of the classroom (or not having meetings, etc!). Each student is asked to fill a brown paper bag with collection items, and bring it to school after the break. Or, they can bring it to a collection point during the break.
Helping collections stay steady throughout breaks is important so that you can keep fundraising even when school isn’t in session. This will keep you prepared to continue high collections when break is over, and not have dips in funding. Not to mention that your trash piles won’t get backed up and stacked too high over a vacation! Plus, TerraCycle needs all the drink pouches, chip bags, and trash we can get! 😉
This challenge is solely for your students or participants – you won’t be competing against other Brigades, so you can set a reward or goal for your group on your own.
