On Dec. 18, with a little help from St. Luke’s and Jack’s Urban Meeting Place, The Idaho Youth Education Recycling Partnership raised $103,000, breaking the previous record of $85,000 in 2011.
St. Luke’s downtown Boise location recycled 6100 pounds of metal and their new facility under construction in Fruitland recycled 5800 pounds, for a total contribution of $1041, making them the top revenue contributor to IYERP’s
metal recycling program for three years. The JUMP project team, including Hoffman Construction, McAlvain Group and Inland Foundation Specialties, recycled 13,500 pounds resulting in a total contribution of $1215.
IYERP is a collection of individuals and corporations with a mission to raise recycling awareness and improve recycling at the community level. Recycling proceeds are distributed to youth programs through the John William Jackson Fund and are used to advance academic scholarship, performing arts and outdoor sporting for Idaho youth.
