Recently the United Way awarded the BookEnds organization their first check from the Glass4Good glass recycling program funded by the O-I Glass Company. BookEnds will receive all the proceeds from the recycling program for one year. The funds will be used to provide programs to help students read at grade level by third grade. Glass4Good is a partnership between O-I Glass Company, United Way and the City of Danville. Glass from the recycling bins throughout Danville is recycled at O-I’s Danville plant and proceeds are donated to the United Way for distribution to a local nonprofit.
