Good deeds this Saturday

Area residents have a chance to do two good deeds this Saturday.

We can help the environment, and Camp Molinare & Habitat for Humanity at the same time.

It’s time for the annual recycling event for Camp Molinare & Habitat for Humanity.

Camp Molinare, located at Sawyer Lake in Channing, opened in 1946.

The 4-H youth camp has been helping area children build great summer memories for generations.

It is a Dickinson County landmark.

Due to funding cuts, Camp Molinare needs help. Camp Molinare depends on area residents and camp alumni to keep the doors open.

Habitat for Humanity Menominee River of Iron Mountain-Kingsford is a community-based organization that works in partnership with God and people everywhere to serve local families in need.

Habitat for Humanity builds and sells to partner families simple, decent homes.

They build and renovate homes, thereby improving neighborhoods and helping create communities where people are able to live and grow to their full potential.

Habitat for Humanity Menominee Rive offers two to five homes per year to partner families in the Dickinson and Iron county areas.

The recycling drop-off to benefit these worthy organizations is set for Saturday, April 26, from 9 a.m. until noon in the parking lot of the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store, 113 S. Milwaukee Ave., in Kingsford.

Accepted items include:

– All metals and auto/truck batteries with proceeds going to Camp Molinare .

– All appliances requiring coolant removal for a $10 each fee-make checks payable to Habitat for Humanity. These items can be recycled at the Re-Store year-round.

– Electronic and computer equipment, including printers, monitors, hard drives, and cell phones.

– Water/Soil Conservation District will collect household batteries and plastic caps from detergent bottles, water bottles, and medicine bottles (no floppy covers).

– All paper products will be accepted by TRICO Opportunities, including books, magazines, cardboard, and office paper.

For details on this recycling effort, contact Lucy Shampo at 774-7683, or Habitat for Humanity at 774-2867.

Warmer weather is slowly returning to the area. It’s a good time to clean out the garage and basement.

Take your recyclable items to the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store this Saturday and help out two worthy causes.
