Thanks to all who have supported this ministry!

During the month of September we collected  & sold 40 egg cartons and 31# of aluminum cans for a total of $13.85  which will go to October's Mission Project! Reminder, besides these 2 items we also collect eyeglasses/cases which are recycled thru the Beatrice Optimist Club;  used greeting cards which are brought to BSDC,  Pop Tabs for the  Ronald McDonald House, Plastic Sacks and Christmas lights to be recycled in conjunction with KBB (Keep Beatrice Beautiful).

All items except aluminum cans can be left at the Welcome Center or you are welcome to drop off in our new recycling shed (purchased thru an Immanuel Vision Grant)found just west of the church.

Thanks to Linda Grell at KBB for providing large trash bags for our aluminum can containers which were donated by Walmart.  If you have any ideas or suggestions for this ministry please contact Connie Thornburg.
