Benches for Kate:

Benches for Kate is a project to honor the memory of 7-year-old Kate Babich who died last summer of a heart defect.  They are collecting plastic bags to turn into buddy benches for our schools and parks in memory of Kate.  The idea of a buddy bench is that if you do not have anybody to play with, you sit on the bench and a friend would come up, and play with you.  Please donate your plastic bags to Benches for Kate. 

Where to donate:
Drop off your plastic bags in the collection bins located at Centennial Fitness Center, Centennial Activity Center & Maine Park during their business hours.

What can be recycled?
Grocery bags
Bread bags
Case overwrap
Dry cleaning bags
Newspaper sleeves
Ice bags
Wood pellet bags
Ziplock and other reclosable bags
Produce bags
Bubble wrap
Salt bags
Cereal bags
All plastic must be clean, dry and free of food residue.
