Magazine Drive

Help us earn funds to purchase a Nintendo Wii for Longfellow. The paper drive returns and this time we're seeking your magazines, catalogs, and phonebooks! Help us collect as many magazines, catalogs, and phonebooks as possible throughout the month of February.

In thanks, Longfellow will purchase a book for our classroom library for every 50 pounds of recycling you bring in.
