get involved SUMMER sustainable BREAKFAST LUNCH CATERING By dEBBiE shEPard iF your ChiLd plays on a sports team, chances are you have a large collection of trophies. Many teams give every child a tro-phy every year they play, which can add up after years of playing. If some of these tro-phies are no longer meaningful to your child and you’re running out of shelf space, you can recycle them. Lamb Awards & Engraving, a trophy com-pany in Maryland, has begun a program to help find a new home for your very old tro-phies so that they avoid the landfill. They will either donate matching sets to charities in need or break the trophies down for parts. These parts will go on to other trophy win-ners. They request that you email them at internet@lambawards.com before sending your old trophies. Please include “recycling” in the subject line. They also accept old plaques, sculptures, and medals. You’re re-sponsible for any expenses related to ship-ping the old items to 129 E. Main St., West-minster, MD 21157. Soccer gear your child no longer needs can be donated to Soccer for Life, satglobal.com/ project_athletic_shoes_for_build.htm, which sends these items to children in Mexico, Gha-na and Haiti every three months. They need cleats, uniforms, shorts, athletic shoes, soc-cer balls, goalie gear, referee uniforms and gear, first aid supplies, goals, medals and tro-phies. Mail your soccer gear to Dee Bright-man at 214 Deeper Green Rd., Monticello, AK 71655. They also accept donations to cover the cost of shipping to supplies.
