USA – We CAN make a difference – February 12, 2020
Thanks to the many people that are donating aluminum cans to provide the money the Harvest Kids need to help vulnerable children in central Africa. This includes our co-laborers that run the expresso stand in Granite Falls, Walker Motor Works car dealership in Marysville and the different recovery houses in Skagit Valley that collect cans. The Harvest Kids use their “Change the World” donations (their own pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters) to do a variety of projects, such as building schools for kids or buying mosquito nets for vulnerable children in Africa, but the “recycle can” money is used to pay monthly support for Komfort Africa, which is a ministry helping orphaned and vulnerable children in Uganda, and to pay the teachers that work at the primary school in the DRCongo that provides education for the children from the Wambuti pygmy tribe. Thanks to the kids and adults who help to crush and bag these cans and to Zee’s Brothers Recycling in Lynden that buy the aluminum cans. Thanks to our faithful servant, Cheryl, who hooks up her horse trailer and delivers the cans. We just recycled 540 pounds of crushed cans and received $135 that will be used to help the kids fulfill their monthly commitment to help their less fortunate young brothers and sisters in Africa.
If you would like to donate aluminum cans, they can be dropped off at the Harvest Home, 9467 Pierce Lane, Sedro Woolley anytime. If no one is there, they can be put inside or beside the container at the front door. If you would like to donate your change (or folding money) for the Change the World, it can be dropped off at the Harvest Home, Tue-Fri, 10am-4pm. If you would like to set up a collection can at your work or another location, please contact Dale at 360-982-8159.
