Did you know that our school provides weekend food bags for over 25 food insecure families in our school community each week? Friday mornings are the time to come help right after drop off in the cafetorium.
BUT there is yet another way you can help. We are asking for your bottle deposit returns to help fund the food bags. You can drop off bags of Oregon Bottle Deposit cans and bottles (glass or plastic with the OR 10 cent mark on it) in the NE corner of the cafetorium at the PTA closet door. No lids – please at least empty them of liquids. We will set up a bin there for your returns. You can also drop them on the East corner of my house – behind the garbage bins – at 4834 SW Iowa St. We will turn this into money for the food bags. Because we buy our produce from Fred Meyer, your $0.10 becomes $0.12 of spendable money. If you want to become a frequent giver, I am happy to give you the green bags needed for us to streamline return.
With just a few bags of cans and bottles dropped off to me over the summer, we have already funded the first three weeks of food ($225). Imagine what we could do with an actual concerted ongoing effort!
Reach out to me for more info/questions/supplies! Thanks for helping make our community resources go farther!
We will use this system for return. I have the specific supplies needed so please bring the returnables to me directly. If you would like to help return bottles for the school, please let me know!
