Community Focus - Colllecting Box Tops
- December 14, 2012
Lyon Co KFB has begun collecting box tops and Campbell’s soup can labels to send to the Red Bird Mission in Eastern KY. The Red Bird Mission has been providing ministries in that region of the Appalachian Mountains. Needs in that isolated, rural area remain critical due to poverty, lack of jobs, poor housing, and rugged mountain terrain. The Red Bird Mission tries to assist in five areas: Education, Health and Wellness, Community Outreach, Economic Opportunity, and Community Housing Improvement.
The Lyon Co KFB also continues to collect food for the local food bank, The Hope Food Bank, and the supplies for the local animal shelter. Supplies needed for the animal shelter are food; old blankets/sheets/towels; monetary donations; etc.
Hours of collection for these items are Monday – Friday, 7:30am to 4:30pm.
Thanks to all our KFB members and community for assisting us with our endeavor to assist these 3 organizations.
