Recycle and Reuse collection this Saturday

The Recycling Day at St. Anne's Church collects bikes and mopeds for free to be reused. Most items to be recycled (like mattresses, TVs, and appliances) require paying a fee.

Saturday, St. Anne’s Church parking lot will again host a special recycling event. While it’s not a church run fundraiser, the organizer makes a donation to the parish.
