$5600 in Green Apple Day of Service Mini-Grants Awarded
Thanks to the generous support from a number of sponsors, we have awarded a total of 14 mini-grants of $400 each to schools in support of Green Apple Day of Service projects. National Grid and NSTAR funded a total of 12 projects focused on energy conservation (National Grid split their grants between MA and RI) – with Arrowstreet, Capitol Waste Services, Re-Stream, and Triumph Modular providing support for five more projects.
Congratulations to our awardees!

We also thank Excel Dryer for their in-kind donation of four XL-SI Green Apple dryers to Brighton High School.
It's not too late to get involved with Green Apple Day of Service. Projects can still be coordinated and registered at http://mygreenapple.org/. If you're looking to volunteer with a project, see the current MA registered projects for service days in your community.
We especially encourage Chapter Volunteers to attend the projects that received funding support from our sponsors.
Thank you to our generous Green Apple Day of Service Mini Grant sponsors and their support of healthy, sustainable schools.
