j0438320The organizers of Verona High’s Project Graduation, Class of 2011, are asking for donations of used, broken or unwanted cell phones. This is a win-win: The donated phones will raise funds so that the current junior class can enjoy a supervised, alcohol- and drug-free celebration with their classmates on the night of their graduation. Another plus: The unwanted phones won’t end up in landfills, where chemicals from their batteries can leach into groundwater. Cell phone drop-off boxes are currently available at the Verona Community Center, Verona Library and Verona High School.

Project Graduation is a nationwide effort to develop an awareness of drug and alcohol use among students and is sponsored by the VHS SCA. Parties endorsed by Project Graduation have been shown to dramatically reduce drug- and alcohol-related car accidents involving teens on graduation night. For monetary donations to Project Graduation, contact Holly Denton by e-mail or at (973) 454-6981.
