Aluminum Cans making a Positive Difference for Youth
For several years the Men in Mission of MLLC have been collecting aluminum beverage cans for a special purpose. They are working to help make sure young people from MLLC get some help to attend Lutheran Church Bible Camp at Lutherhill. In recent years this men’s ministry group has quietly collected these cans to raise money from selling these through recycling. This year the Men in Mission were able to provide $50.00 per youth member for their participation a summer camping program at Lutherhill.
The Men in Mission have not been alone in this. They have had significant support from many people who donate enough cans each year to provide this encouragement and assistance to many youth. They don’t really know all who those who make the donations. This is because the donation center is outside in a quiet corner of the church facilities. Every week kind, and generally anonymous, individuals drop off bag upon bag of empty aluminum beverage cans to help our youth.
You can be part of this happy cause as well. Simply set aside your used aluminum beverage cans. Then, when you are on your way to worship, or heading to or through town, simply grab your bags of cans and leave these at the donation station.
The donation station is on the north side of the building – the side facing US 290. This is under the covered part of the drive through, drop off entrance to the fellowship hall. These photos show the can receptacles in the context of the north entrance. The station is open 24 hours a day.
Thank you all for your partnership in ministry at MLLC. Together we are making disciples of Jesus Christ and sharing God’s love to the ends of the earth.
