July Recycle

Have you been wondering what happened to the news from the Recycle Team? The Team is working on streamlining some of its processes, so we'll now be updating you on a monthly basis. July has been a busy month for the Recycle Team. Many people have been using this time to clean out basements, storage areas, and attics and then bringing their discards to us. This means not just a couple trips to Padnos each week, but also a wide variety of items for the Online Garage Sale, including vintage china, a boat, and trailer, 2 commercial sink units, heaters, freezers, lots of kitchenware, etc. There was also a big influx of returnables this month, which brought the challenge of coordinating trips for bottle returns to times when a variety of stores were able to accept them. We're thankful for the host of volunteers who so willingly give of their time to serve God by serving the community through this ministry. July Recycle Totals YTD
