Unfortunately, the Caps of Love charity that Mt. Horeb has been graciously supporting has been discontinued. Due to the low petroleum market in recent years, the recycling of polypropylene #5, #2 and #4 are only bringing ten cents a pound instead of the original 26-28 cents a pound when this charity started nine years ago. At this very low value, it is no longer viable for the Florida donation center to continue.
As of June 2017, Caps of Love has provided 70 free wheelchairs and recycled over 193 tons of caps.
The members of the Interaction Class thank all of you for your overwhelming response to the charity. A special thanks to Deena Bishop for the hundreds of caps that she brought from her office at Lexington 1 School District.
