OLD TONER CARTRIDGES & OLD CELL PHONES

What to do with all those old empty printer cartridges and old cell phones? Bring them in and put them in the collection bench located in the Chapel hallway… lift the seat! We send them in for two reasons, one, they are recycled and two, we make a little money that is used to help fund the youth mission trips. It’s really a win, win situation. Thanks again!
