In collaboration with Project 351 and WalMart, donations will support Peabody’s Haven from Hunger. WalMart will make an in-kind donation, by weight, to one of the four major food banks in Boston. Donations will be received daily in the Higgins mall area before school. There will be daily drawings for all students who donate, along with a total donation incentive for the cluster with the largest number of donated pieces of food.

The Bay State Textiles Recycling Rebate Program is happening through out the Peabody Public Schools; collection boxes have been installed at each school. The focus of the program is to spread awareness to the problem of textile waste while generating revenue for the schools. The program offers a rebate of $100 per ton for the textiles collected. The beneficiary of the rebate will be the individual school PTO's.
The rebate checks are disbursed monthly for the month prior. For example you should receive the November rebate payment by the middle of December. The checks are done on line and have to be cashed with in ninety days or the check is returned to Bay State Textiles so please make your school office aware that the checks will be coming and cash the check in a timely manner.
