Paper Recycling Fights Hunger!
By some estimates, each of us throws away one pound of recyclable paper every day. Instead of sending this paper to a landfill, let’s do something good!  Within the next week, a recycling bin will be parked near the shed in our church parking lot. We’re going to fill that bin with paper, which will be turned into paper towels, napkins, insulation, cardboard, wall board, greeting cards and more! 

We’ll be paid for each ton we recycle, and that money will go toward ministry - specifically toward our meal packaging project in April.   

We can turn waste into food for hungry families! Each time we fill the bin, we will be able to feed SIXTY people! So tell your friends and family and let's start filling that bin!

Paper can be brought to the bin in a plastic or paper bag.
