Thank You: The Sweet Water Foundation cannot thank the Disciples of Resurrection enough for the great support in our recycling efforts. So far this year we have collected 1857 items for recycling, 577 from Resurrection (that’s 31% of the total). The Foundation has raised over $1500 in recycling profits. $400 of this will pay all of our administrative expenses for the year leaving over $1000 towards the projects for our children. If YOU have ink jets, toners, cell phones, digital cameras or any small electronic, please consider recycling those items through Sweet Water. There is a box in the coat room (marked Bill Black) or you can call me (630-875-0915) and I’ll pick them up. Check out the web site at www.wjbsweetwaterfoundation.org for information about the Foundation. God bless all of you, and thank you.
