Cash for Cans

Take your bottles and cans to QFC (next to the BCS Fernwood Campus) on Saturdays (any Saturday) between 4 and 8 for recycling to benefit BCS PTA.

What do you do?  Bag your recycling, hand it to one of the courtesy clerks at QFC between 4:00 and 8:00pm on Saturday -- and let them know the refund money is for Beverly Cleary School.  They count the bottles and cans for you and give BCS cash money.  It's that easy.
