ATTENTION ALL HOUSEHOLDS

Have you joined St. Paul’s Recyclable program yet?

 

St. Paul’s has embarked on an easy fund raiser to help with the Church renovations. All you need to do is bag up all your empty bottles, cans and milk jugs and put our church id # 1468-2415 visible on each bag and drop them off at the bottle depot on Resources Road.

If 10 people donate $10.00 worth of recyclables that will put $100.00 into St. Paul’s account! If 100 people donated $10.00 a month that will put $1000 into our account. It’s just that easy! Thank you for your support.
