Recycling for Charities has entered into an arrangement with the May Institute, located in Revere, Massachusetts. The May Institute has offered to provide volunteer services; namely, assisting Cans in their collection efforts in the Greater Boston area.

Established more than 50 years ago, the May Institute has set a national standard for providing comprehensive, research-validated services to children and adults with autism, brain injury, mental retardation, pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), and behavioral health care needs. May's award-winning network of educational, behavioral, and rehabilitative programs blends science with service to help make progress possible for thousands of individuals every year.

We¨re very grateful to the May Institute for providing this valuable and needed volunteering service.


Recycling for Charities is also proud to announce that it has entered an arrangement with Charles River Arc in Needham. 

Charles River Arc is a private, nonprofit human service agency in Needham, Massachusetts, providing employment and job training, residential homes, therapeutic day programs, and recreational programs for children and adults with mental retardation and other developmental disabilities.

Founded by a group of parents of children with special needs in 1956, the mission of Charles River Arc has always been to improve the quality of life by helping each individual with a developmental disability achieve his or her highest possible level of independence so that he or she can fully participate, benefit, and become a contributing member of the community.

Charles River Arc serves over 500 families from many communities including Needham, 780, Weston, Newton, Dedham, Cambridge, Brighton, Brookline, Framingham, Natick, Westwood, Dover, Waltham, Roslindale, Hyde Park, Roxbury, Watertown, Quincy, Norwood, West Roxbury and many more.

We're very grateful for the Charles River Arc's help in this wonderful effort.

The Community Youth Alliance, Inc. and the Concord Youth Civic Leadership - Hunger

Recycling for Charities in Collaborative Effort with The Concord Youth Civic Leadership in Concord, Massachusetts, help raised funds for the Children's Hunger Relief Fund (CHRF).

The Community Youth Alliance, Inc. along with the Concord Youth Civic Leadership, has organized a dance fund-raiser, called, "Dance Away Hunger."  Together we raised $2,000.00 for CHRF in their support of the families in Darfur, Sudan.  Thanks to the The Community Youth Alliance, Inc. and the Concord Youth Civic Leadership in Concord, MA, approximately 29 families in Darfur will have both food, and water for a month, cooking kits and temporary shelter.

CHRF is one of the only relief agencies still active in the remote areas of Darfur, Sudan where the needs are very critical. Thanks to compassionate people like you, CHRF were able to bring in several tons of desperately needed relief during their fall trip. CHRF is planning another trip as soon as possible and ask that you would continue to remember the Darfuri people in your giving. Please click on one of the links below to learn more.
