Interact collecting cans, bottles for service trip to El Salvador

Houghton Lake High School Ro­tary Interact students are collecting return­able beverage cans and bot­tles, of all types, to raise funds for their service trip to El Salvador in the spring.

The students are collecting “emp­ties” through Jan. 6, 2018 for their “Holiday Can/Bottle Fundraising Event.” Students en­courage resi­dents and visitors to donate their empties to assist them to help pay trip costs for the 18 students who have volunteered to spend 10 days in San Sal­vador to build concrete homes for multi­generational fami­lies in great need.

The students are very grateful for every returnable container collected, as every dime brings them closer to their service trip funding goal.

Donors can donate directly to Ro­tary Interact students they know or may call Rhonda Lamberg, Rotarian and club ad­visor, at 329-6795, to ar­range to have the returnables picked up. Donors can also drop their emp­ties off at Cashaway Supply, at 3945 West Houghton Lake Dr., Houghton Lake, during store hours, Monday- Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sat­urday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and after hours by dropping them at the store’s back en­trance.
