Ongoing bottle and can drive
Manchester - posted Aug, 15 2012
On the fourth Saturday of every month, Assumption School's Sister Joan Marie Crapps, SCMC and a team of student and parent volunteers collect bottles and cans to take to a local recycling center. Local parishioners and involved citizens collect several hundred dollars in cans and bottles each month to help fund school activities. The majority of the funds raised goes in the scholarship fund. This year, $2,000 were raised for the scholarship fund. The remaining money is used to buy myriad essential school supplies, ranging from Bibles and books about saints to new headphones and computer programs. The drives will resume on the fourth Saturday in August.
