Chargers’ Project Grad Fair Recycles Too

While the Pearl City High School Project Graduation Committee certainly hopes to raise funds with its next event, it’s also aiming to raise awareness about the importance of sustainable living.

The committee will conduct a Green Day Garage Sale and Fair from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 16 in the high school cafeteria on the theme of “Reuse, Recycle, Reinvent and Renew.”

Charger students and parents hope the benefit will encourage others to live “green.”

The fair and sale will provide a wide range of activities, including food trucks, health and wellness booths, craft vendors, exhibits and a farmers market.

Recycling stations for various goods — including old cellular phones and laptops, glass and plastic bottles and aluminum cans — also will be open on site.

For a $5 fee, supporters also can participate in a clothing swap by bringing used or new clothing and accessories to trade with other attendees. Traders can select one item for every item they bring.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Pearl City High School seniors for Project Graduation — an all-night, drug-and- alcohol-free celebration.

Vendor applications also are being accepted. Vendor fees are $50; booth space is free for students.
