The effort is part a program that “up cycles” the used pens into new products and makes a donation to a charity of the donor’s choosing. So the next time your pen runs out of ink, don’t pitch it into the trash, which ends up in a landfill.
Donation containers can be found:
• on the Rose Hill campus—Faculty Memorial Hall room 128 and McGinley Center room 204;
• on the Lincoln Center campus—Lowenstein Center room 128A; and
• on the Westchester campus—room G13.
For every pen collected, .02 cent will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
