Mrs. Barlow's art classes need approximately one hundred 2-qt.-sized plastic liquid laundry detergent containers for a project. The students need them in all colors, handle on the side -- like Gain or Wisk. Fabric softeners will work too! Please drop off the empty containers in the art room or in the lobby.
If anyone can place a collection box at their local laundromat, that may help too. These usually have a recycle # 2 on the bottom.
Needed By: Tuesday, December 10th
Thanks for supporting the Arts!
