CLYNK For Schools

CLYNK!  Did you hear that? It’s the sound of change for K-12 schools

We encourage our schools to raise funds and recycling awareness by CLYNKing redeemable bottles and cans year-round at participating Hannaford Supermarkets. And during our annual Recycling Challenge, Jan. 29 – March 26, 2018, schools will get even MORE change—or better yet, funds in the form of a check. For every $1 raised in the Challenge period, schools will get an added 50 cent match, plus the opportunity to compete for other cash prizes! Last year’s winners raised an average of $1,500 for their school. Public and private K-12 schools in Maine or New York are eligible.

Families, you can also give some change by signing up for CLYNK and donating to your school through your personal online CLYNK account. Your influence will impact schools and the community through positive recycling momentum. And it’s official! As of Nov. 1, 2017, principals have received an email prompting them to activate their school account. Gently give them a nudge to be sure that they do not hit the DELETE button and void participation in the seventh annual CLYNK for Schools Recycling Challenge. It’s big!

Don’t be a stranger (we enjoy your company). Keep checking back for more information.
