LEEF announced Northstar Recycling will be a sponsor of its 2014 annual gala at the platinum level.

“Northstar Recycling is a long-time LEEF sponsor, and we are very grateful to have their support this year at the platinum level,” said Candice Healy, foundation president. “This generous donation will enable LEEF to make teachers’ and students’ wishes come true as we can provide them with enrichment activities and tools needed to enhance their already rigorous curriculum.”

Northstar Recycling is among more than 40 gala sponsors and over 150 auction donors who are supporting this year’s gala.

The 13th annual gala will be held at Twin Hills Country Club on Nov. 1. The gala is the foundation’s primary fundraising activity and features live and silent auctions, food, and entertainment. Gala tickets and tickets to the 50-50 raffle may be purchased online by visiting

“We have been delighted to support LEEF over the years,” says Seth Goodman, CEO of Northstar Recycling, “and since sponsorships and donations are funneled directly to the classrooms through grants, we saw this as a win-win for our organization and everyone involved in this wonderful cause.”

The mission of the foundation is to create and maintain a fund for the benefit of Longmeadow Public Schools students. This fund provides grants, beyond the tax-supported budget, for innovative education and enrichment programs.


Your Support is Vital

It's a fact. We cannot provide grants without funds. So, that is where you come in. We are asking you to become a contributor to LEEF. We are painfully aware that there are many deserving organizations competing for your contributions. However, LEEF positively impacts your child's education experience. To minimize the impact of fundraising on you, we have a long-term strategy designed to build a self-sustaining endowment that will fund the annual grants. But in the short term, we must request contributions twice a year through our Gala and Phonathon – and leave the door open through our direct contribution programs. LEEF appreciates every gift, large or small. Your thoughtfulness and generosity will be appreciated by the children, their teachers and our schools.
