DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT …and help the LWML (Lutheran Women’s Mission League) raise funds for its 2015 National Convention which will be held in Des Moines. It will be sponsored jointly by the LWML Iowa District East and Iowa District West. To raise funds to cover expenses, the IDE and IDW are sponsoring “Ready, Set, Recycle!” We invite all members of our congregation to bring the following recyclable items to Grace and leave them in the boxes so marked on the coat racks in the narthex and office corridor… Empty inkjet printer cartridges, empty laser printer cartridges, used cell phones, laptops (include power cords for both), and PDA’s (Palm Pilots). The LWML will collect them and redeem them for cash to pay for convention expenses. If you have questions, please contact our LWML recycling facilitator - Bev Schmidt at 233.9924. (Sorry, we can not use Canon BCI or Epson products.)
WONDERING WHAT TO DO with empty inkjet and/or laser printer cartridges,
used cell phones, laptops (with power cords) and PDA’s (Palm Pilots)? Here’s
a suggestion-donate them to the LWWL. We will collect them and redeem them
for cash to help fund the LWML’S 2015 National Convention in Des Moines.
Ask your family, friends, neighbors-even the place where you work- if they
would like help disposing of their empty inkjet cartridges and laser cartridges.
Then, bring then to Grace and drop them in our collection box on the coat
racks in the narthex or office corridor. We’ll appreciate your help…and
so will the environment. (Sorry, we can not use Canon BCI or Epson products.)
