NextStep Community Outreach - Junior Defender Taylor Jones
Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2010 - 4 p.m.

As a team we have joined with the United Way and O Heroes to give back to our community. Throughout the year we visit many different organizations and help in any way possible - whether it’s raising money or reading to elementary school children.

This past week we joined forces with NextStep, a recycling center right here in Eugene. Last Tuesday and Wednesday we were welcomed with open arms as we were handed a pair of gloves and goggles.

Both days we engaged in some hands-on activities like taking apart computers, binders, and even old VCR players. As we tore apart a variety of things, each little screw, piece of plastic and cable was thrown into a different bin where it was later recycled.

We all loved it so much that we will be going back again next week.
