Electronics Disposal a success


To the Editor:

On Saturday, May 16th, we were blessed with another sunny, successful electronics disposal day here at Martha’s Vineyard Community Services (MVCS).

We appreciate everyone who came out to help us raise funds for our MVCS programs. Thank you to the staff, the board, and the community for supporting our agency and for disposing of their electronics responsibly. A heartfelt thank you to our sponsor, Bruno’s, and especially Scott Carroll, who truly put more than his fair share of energy into the day, helping us to streamline and organize, as well as staying with us all day long to ensure items were disposed of correctly.

Thank you as well to our incredible volunteers: Community Corrections (thanks to Brian Kennedy), members of the MVRHS girls lacrosse team (thanks to Coach Dripps), members of the MVRHS boys hockey team (thanks to Coach Mincone), members of the MVRHS Student Council (thanks to Olson Houghton), members of the Wampanoag Tribe of Aquinnah youth program (thanks to Amira Madison), Sterling Bishop, and many of our fabulous staff and board members, their significant others, children, and friends.

We would also like to send a special “thank you” to Heidi Feldman of Martha’s Vineyard Sea Salt for volunteering her time on Saturday as well as for her generous offer to provide customers who present their Electronic Disposal Day receipt with a 50 percent discount at the West Tisbury Farmers Market Martha’s Vineyard Sea Salt booth.

We hope to see you at our next Electronics Disposal Day in the fall of 2015. Check back in March for the spring 2016 date. Start collecting those items —we will be here to reduce the clutter in an environmentally friendly way once again!

A huge thank you from the entire agency.
