Valley Recent Grads Go Green
07.15.11 |
On June 30, Lebanon Valley College’s “Doing Good, Going Green Challenge” reached its goal of 500 donations from recent graduates, or those graduating from 2000–2010. In honor of the success, the College will plant a tree to symbolize the school’s commitment to the environment.

“It was very exciting to see so many people come together and work hard to achieve this goal,” said Shaylene Scheib ’07, assistant director of annual giving.

Donors who made a contribution of $25 or more received a reusable tote bag and all donors, regardless of the amount donated, received no additional paper solicitations for the rest of that fundraising year. One lucky graduate, Christopher Rankin ’01 of Cleona, won a $250 Amazon gift card in a random drawing.

“We are very grateful to everyone who made a donation to LVC through this challenge,” Scheib ’07 said, “Donations directly impact today’s students.”

From beginning to end, the environment was considered in the production of the printed materials donors received in the mail for the “Doing Good, Going Green” recent grad challenge.

According to the printing program managers, the production of that paper, which uses wind power, 100 percent postconsumer recycled and carbon neutral fibers, has preserved two trees; eliminated seven pounds of water-borne waste; saved 1,020 gallons of wastewater flow; prevented 222 pounds of net greenhouse gases; saved 1.7 million BTUs of energy; preserved 2,289 cubic feet of natural gas; and is equivalent to planting 19 trees.
