On Saturday, November 17, Spence Farm hosted an Appliance Recycling Collection Drive allowing residents of Woburn and the surrounding communities to drop off their unwanted appliances for a minimal cost. The event was a big success as numerous people dropped off their appliances and a great showing of volunteers came out to help lift appliances and greet people as they drove up.
These collection drives are hosted a few times a year and proceeds go to local nonprofits as well as a scholarship fund for a Woburn High School graduating senior that will be continuing their education in the field of environmental science. The next collection drive will be on Saturday, March 16 from 9am to 1pm, so mark it down on your calendars!
This drive helped raise money to support projects and programs for Social Capital Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to connecting citizens to strengthen communities. Volunteers came out from Woburn and the surrounding communities to help make this event a smashing success! Thanks to Spence Farm and all the wonderful volunteers, a total of $1,637 was raised with $200 going to the high school scholarship fund and $1,437 raised for SCI!
