In celebration of the 46th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22, the St. Louis Cardinals will host its 7th annual Green Week (#4AGreenerGame) April 29 through May 3, with activities designed to promote recycling, both inside and outside of Busch Stadium.
To kick off Green Week festivities, the Cardinals will host an electronics recycling and general donations drive on Friday, April 22, in collaboration with MERS/Goodwill. Fans may drop off unused or unwanted computers and electronic equipment at donation trailers in the Lot C Parking Lot, located at the corner of 8th Street and Cerre Street, immediately south of I-64/40.
All items will be accepted free of charge, and donors do not need to sort their items prior to dropping them off. Computers and computer accessories, phones (home and cell), clocks, VCRs, DVD players, stereos, AV equipment including cable and satellite boxes, and any other electronic devices (except TVs) will be accepted in any condition. Televisions are no longer being accepted. Goodwill will also accept any general donations including clothing, furniture, home décor, and housewares.
All donations are tax deductible, and Goodwill will provide receipts for items donated. In return, fans donating will receive a voucher good for half price Cardinals tickets. The event runs from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. For more information, visit cardinals.com/greenweek or mersgoodwill.org.
The revenue generated from the sale of fan donations is used to further MERS/Goodwill's mission of providing opportunities for persons with barriers to employment to work and live more independently in the community. The primary focus and success of MERS/Goodwill's employment and rehabilitation programs is in their ability to prepare people for the world of work.
