Letcher County Extension Homemakers have been collecting plastic lids from soft drink bottles, margarine cups, detergent bottles, cake icing cans, etc. for several years. The Girl Scouts took them to the Shriners, who in turn, took them to the Shriners Children’s Hospital in Lexington. The money raised through the project was used to help the young patients.
The Shriners Hospital is no longer accepting them so the Homemakers must end the collection unless there is another local organization which can use them. The local Shriners still collect pull tabs from aluminum cans.
If you have further information to help with this project, call Ann Bradley at 633-2362.
