50 Clear White Bottled Water Plastic Bottle Caps Lids Kids - Etsy  BOTTLE CAPS FOR VETERANS

If you drink bottled water or other bottles with clear or white caps, you may want to consider donating these to be recycled into prosthetics for our amputated veterans!

Contact Sam Reidy at for more info or to arrange pickup/drop off of bottle caps for donations.    DROP OFF AT VFW 6pm-7pm on AUGUST 29, 2023.


Recycle old glasses and hard shell eyelass cases. The glasses are sorted to determine those that are usable or unusable, processed and placed in inventory for distribution to optical missions around the world.  Help minimize landfill waste by supporting precious metal reclamation and scrap processing for damaged glasses that are unusable.  The hard-shell glass cases are recycled for hygiene kits for the homeless and our Veterans.   


       HEARING AIDES can also be dropped off in this bin.



COLLECTION FOR VETERANS The Veterans Association on Pine Street in Fall River is in constant need of basic essential items for the food pantry and lunches for the Veterans. Especially needed are to-go containers, plastic utensils, paper plates, and napkins. In addition, any hygiene items, canned goods, and snacks. Contact 1st VP John Hinves if you have any donations to offer!
