CAN & BOTTLE DRIVE

Save yourself the chore of sorting your returnables!  Bring your empty, clean returnable bottles and cans to the Fitchburg Public Library garage.  Girl Scouts Troop 30625 will sort them and bring them to be redeemed.  The funds collected will be shared equally between the troop and the Friends of the Library.   The donation of cans also benefits Shriners Hospitals because we save the pull tabs for them to sell for the aluminum.  

If you can't make it today, save your bottles and cans for future drives.
