Pop Can Tab Collections

Can tabs are the easiest way to help our local Ronald McDonald House – easy to store and take up little space. Donations help families feel like they are in a “home away from home” while their child receives treatment for serious illness or hospitalization. Turn your tabs in on co-op Fridays at the HOME Welcome Desk. Contact Person – Cathy Rowan @ travelcathy@wowway.com

Empty Prescription Bottles

Matthew 25 Ministries accepts donations of empty prescription pill bottles to help improve health care quality in developing nations. Donations of clean, UNLABELED pill bottles help the poorest of the poor in many ways. Medicine can be distributed in sterile containers. Pill bottles that are not appropriate for shipping are recycled for cash that goes towards Matthew 25 Ministry programs. Contact person- Cathy Rowan @ travelcathy@wowway.com

Box Tops for Education

10 cents a Box Top adds up quickly and benefits our HOME Group Members with free field trips, seminars and resources for our lending library. Please clip the labels along the perforated lines and turn them in on co-op Fridays at the HOME Welcome Desk. Contact Person – Cathy Rowan @ travelcathy@wowway.com

 Used Ink Cartridges

The FundingFactory turns our used toner and inkjet cartridges into cash to help fund HOME Group special events. This is a 100% free fundraising program that helps our community and our environment.  Turn in your used cartridges on co-op Fridays at the HOME Welcome Desk. Contact Person – Cathy Rowan @ travelcathy@wowway.com
