SOLE (Students Organizing Labor Equality) is a student run club at ORRHS. A division of the United Students Against Sweatshops, SOLE works to promote fair trade practices and USA made products within the high school and community. Last year SOLE was able to purchase fair trade soccer balls for the boys’ soccer team. This year, SOLE is trying to raise enough money this year to do the same for the girls’ team.
The school will be holding a technology drive to raise money from January 4 to January 19. Below is a list of used items that would be accepted for donations:
• Any generation iPod and MP3 players
• Cell phones dating from 2005-2011
• GPSs dating from 2008-2011
• Digital cameras and camcorders dating from 2006-2011
• Video games (XBox, Play Station, Wii, etc.)
• Gaming consoles (including PSP, Nintendo DS, etc.)
• Laptops dating from 2008-2011
Any donations would be highly appreciated. Boxes for donations can be found at any of the schools in the district. By donating you will be helping Old Rochester Regional to take a stand against sweatshop labor as well as child labor.
