Thank you to all parishioners who are regularly recycling their cans and papers here. Each month we typically recycle over 8 TONS of paper!! Abitibi Recycling sends us on average a monthly check of $100.00 for that paper. In early May, we received an additional $400.00 because our school was tops in a recent competition to increase recycling. In March alone, we recycled 240 pounds of cans and received a check for $120.00 from Rumpke. Thank you for helping provide extra revenue for our school while taking care of God’s planet.
