MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker College recently purchased two new televisions for its Mount Vernon campus through an ongoing recycling program sponsored by the campus store.
In addition to many donations from local businesses, students, faculty, and staff have been recycling their used cell phones, printer ink cartridges and now, old textbooks, to the recycling program, said Michelle Selph, coordinator of the program at the college and assistant campus store manager. The college earns credits to purchase needed technology equipment for its campus based on the amount of items donated, explains Selph.
The two TVs will be used in the Dowling Residence Hall and in the Briscoe Center.
The local businesses participating in the recycling program include Altamaha Bank (Vidalia), BB&T (Vidalia), Toombs County Courthouse, Mount Vernon Bank (Mount Vernon branch), Montgomery Bank & Trust (Ailey), Peoples Bank (Vidalia/Lyons), Shipping & Beyond (Vidalia), The Advance (Vidalia) and Sign & Stamp (Vidalia).
“We wouldn’t be able to purchase these televisions without their support,” said Selph. “We are very thankful for their support of our college and our mission.”
Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college in south Georgia. To learn more about your business supporting the college through this program, contact Selph at 912-583-3285.
