Paper Gator

PaperGatorFeed the Gator! The paper gator is located in the East Lot at Highlands.  The paper gator is hungry!  We need to fill it with office paper, newspaper, magazines, etc.  We don’t only make an impact in our environment but we also get some money for school programs.  Help us Feed the Gator.
