Help UVNA make some GREEN with your recyclable paper! The 2010 Neighborhood Paper Drive is coming to Ukrainian Village for two weeks starting June 5th. As a community partner with the City of Chicago Department of Environment and Waste Management, UVNA will set up collection site for two weeks in June at the St. Helen’s Church parking lot – 2347 West Augusta – behind Filichia’s Foods and Imports. The 2010 Neighborhood Paper Drive is part of the City’s 2010 Earth Day programs.

All revenue generated from the recyclables will benefit UVNA. In addition, organizations that collect the most paper can win up to $1,000 in cash prizes. HELP US RAISE FUNDS FOR UVNA!
