Keep Islip Clean brought their annual Card Recycling Drive to a very successful conclusion, with approximately 100,000 used greeting cards collected through schools, scouting troop drives and hundreds of individuals who participate every year.
Volunteers sorted, processed and packaged all cards. Most were donated to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, who will create “new” cards and the local American Legion for a letter writing campaign to soldiers overseas.
