LIBRARY SEEKING CARTRIDGES FOR RECYCLING PROGRAM

The Tison Library is partnering with FundingFactory, a leading fundraising-through-recycling company in the United States. The program runs year-round, potentially accumulating constant income for our efforts, but we won’t get very far without your support.


Here's how you can help:


  • Drop off empty name-brand toner and inkjet printer cartridges to the Tison office or have your Tison student bring them to the library.
  • Ask your employer about donating its used name-brand toner and inkjet printer cartridges through FundingFactory's Business Support program. Businesses can ship recyclables directly to FundingFactory with free UPS shipping labels and boxes, or use a drop off location. If you work for a company that may be interested in supporting us, please call FundingFactory toll-free at 888-883-8237. Give the customer service representative our school identification number (#164647) and they’ll set you up to support our account... it's that easy!


If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at 817-598-2960, ext. 4101 or email me at lgreer@weatherfordisd.com.


Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

Leah Greer
