Have you got extra reusable bags bursting out of your closets, car or garage? A local volunteer group, Bags for Change, is doing a REUSABLE BAG ROUND-UP! Between Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day (March 17), please donate your unused, clean, reusable bags made of fabric, mesh, canvas, and heavy-duty plastic by putting them in the bin or box at: Sitka Public Library, UAS, Hames PE Center, Chamber of Commerce, Sitka Community Hospital, Spenard Builders Supply, City Hall, St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Sitka Lutheran Church, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or Unitarian Universalists Hall.
Bags for Change is gathering reusable bags so they can be given to Sitkans who need them. More information is available at 747-2708.
For our health and our environment, Bags for Change encourages you to bring and use your reusable bags every time and everywhere you shop.
