sponsored by For Love of Children (FLOC). All
funds raised from the recycling drive go directly to two
of FLOC’s service projects: The first is a
cultural exchange program with students at Nyumbani, a
home and school in Kenya for orphaned children who are
living with HIV. The second project will help to
improve the Washington, DC watershed. Students
will be removing trash and debris from Rock Creek and
planting native vegetation to restore the natural
habitat and improve local water quality.
