(February 3, 2011) — Yonkers Industries (www.YonkersIndustries.com) announces today that the company has recently adopted Franklin Academy as part of the Box Tops for Education program. To support the school, Yonkers is collecting box tops from participating consumer products as part of a campaign implemented locally by Regency Office Products. Yonkers has set a goal of $2,500 in box tops by December 2011.
“Yonkers is proud to support Franklin Academy and its students by collecting box tops,” says Terry Costello, president and COO. “Not only do I think that we will surpass our goal of earning $2,500 for Franklin Academy, but the entire company is overjoyed to be giving back to the community in which we live and work.”
To launch the campaign, Yonkers Industries has distributed collection boxes throughout its headquarters in Cary, as well as the west coast office in Walnut Creek, CA and other locations.
