Bowling Green International Festival

Recyclops was a sponsor for the 32nd Bowling Green International Festival which took place on Sept. 24th in the beautiful Circus Square Park.

Here, nationalities came together to share their cultures, heritage, and diversity with residents of Bowling Green. The festival celebrates each nationality through music, dance, demonstrations, food and cultural activities! 


Chesapeake Parks & Rec Scholarship

Last month Recyclops became a sponsor for the Chesapeake Parks, Recreation and Tourism’s Youth Scholarship Program! 

This program is dedicated to providing a variety of healthy activities, events, and services to the Chesapeake area. Their goal is to enhance the quality of life for all Chesapeake residents and visitors. Due to the cost of these recreational activities, some Chesapeake residents find it difficult for their children to participate. The Youth Scholarship Program is able to asset these families by providing $65 per calendar year to youth ages 17 and under whose families receive public assistance as defined and confirmed by the Chesapeake Human Services Department.

Recyclops was able to provide 15 families in Chesapeake with this scholarship.
