Brigham Young University Donated Phones For RecyclingPublished by brian.davenport on Fri, 05/07/2010 - 12:20
In an effort to help keep the environment clean, the students and faculty of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah collected and donated cell phones to Landmark High School’s cell phone collection program.
Student Body Vice President Sterling May, who works in the cell phone office for the university, read an article in the Provo “Daily Herald” newspaper about LHS collection cell phones for recycling, and the efforts that they had made to collect cell phone. May contacted Alesha LeMmon, Student Council Advisor for LHS for donating the cell phone. Vice President May told LeMmon “Working in the cell phone office for BYU, we are constantly looking for an opportunity to give away or donate the cell phones to those in need. When we read the article in the paper, we decided to donate the phones to the cause of cleaning up the environment.” There are probably over 300 cell phones that were donated, which will help benefit LHS and their opportunity to get one of the 50 $1,000 green space grants that Landmark is trying for.
When Alesha LeMmon heard the news that BYU was going to donate over 60 cell phones, she about passed out on the floor with excitement. When May delivered the cell phones to the school and told her that there was over 300 phones, she got really excited about it and was jumping for joy.
The students and faculty of Landmark High School would like to thank the students and faculty of Brigham Young University for the donation to helping to create a better environment by donating the cell phone.
