The Fund for the Public Interest and PennEnvironment Solicitation

The Fund for the Public Interest and PennEnvironment has received solicitation approval from the Ohio Township Police to canvass in the Ben Avon Borough from May 8, 2018 to May 31, 2018 as part of their annual public education and membership drive. They are a 501 (c) nonprofit organization and statewide public interest research group that has been canvassing in the Ben Avon Borough for a long time now and have many well-established members there.

 

This spring, PennEnvironment is working on a campaign to protect our rivers and lakes in Pennsylvania. They are doing this by informing residents about the harmful nature of polystyrene (better known as styrofoam), which collects in landfills and pollutes our streams, rivers, and eventually oceans.  

 

They will be canvassing Monday through Friday between 4:00 PM and 9:00 PM and sometimes on Saturday afternoons. All canvassers can be identified by their pins or t-shirts, tablets, and campaign materials. If you have any questions, please contact PennEnvironment at 310-938-8059.
