Collecting Soda Can "Tabs" For Shriners Hospital
Please save your "tabs" from soda cans to benefit Shriners Hospitals. There will be a container place in the Narthex in the near future for the collection. Shriners Hospitals have been collecting pull-tabs or "pop-tops" from beverage cans since 1989, recycling them, and putting the money toward programs that directly benefit children. Since its inception, about a half million pounds of aluminum tabs have been collected and recycled!


Campbell Soup Labels
On behalf of our UMW, We are asking that you save all of your Campbell Soup labels, bring them to our church and deposit them in the specially marked container in the Narthex.

These labels will be given to Cooper Community. The Hattie B. Cooper Community Center is committed to providing children and youth with the strongest developmental foundations to inspire a lifelong excitement for learning and the skills to become caring and responsible citizens. Hattie B. Cooper Community Center (1891 Washington St., Boston) is the only United Methodist National Mission Institution in the six-state area of the NE Annual Conference. Please see Pam Mavrelion if you have any questions.


Can Tabs: Please remember to bring in your tabs to benefit Shriner’s Hospitals.
