St. Peter's students collect old electronics to bring in new technology for school

Posted:

Students at St. Peter's School in Quincy are doing their part tonight to help lessen the sting of tight budgets at their school.

Students are collecting anything from used printer cartridges to old cell phones that are shipped in to a recycling company, in exchange for new technology or cash.

Officials with St. Peter's say the school is trying to equip the entire school with up to date technology.

"Mainly we want to get more technology into the hands of the students. We'd love to have hand held iPads, more laptop computers that type of things just for the students to use," said Sally Blickhan, St. Peter's technology teacher.

If you'd like to donate old electronics to help out the school, contact St. Peter's School at 217-223-1120.
