Volunteer With Duke Recycles At Football Games

Volunteer With Duke Recycles At Football Games

Help Duke Recycles raise money for Duke Children's Hospital

print |

Durham, NC - The annual Recycle for the Children Program starts soon at upcoming Duke football games.

Each football season Duke Recycles coordinates a service project called Recycle for the Children to raise money for Duke Children's Hospital and to encourage recycling. During home football games volunteers help by distributing Recycle for the Children program information to tailgating fans around the stadium for two hours before kickoff.   

Proceeds from the sale of recyclables collected at the games are donated to the Duke Children's Hospital. This year, Coach David Cutcliffe will also match all of the funds Duke Recycles raises through the Recycle for the Children program to double the donation to the Duke Children's Hospital.

This service program is an excellent opportunity to make a positive impact on the environment while helping to support the Duke Children's Hospital.

All service volunteers receive free admission to the game (including their parents and/or chaperones) and a Duke Recycles T-shirt. 

If you work with or are part of a group that would like to help this year please contact Duke Recycles. Volunteers must be at least ten years of age. Volunteer opportunities are limited, so please plan accordingly.
