Every last Sunday of the month you can bring your recyclable beverage containers to Hope in order to provide help for orphans in South Africa.
For years we have supported Christ Church Christian Care Center (5cees), an orphanage in Johannesburg, South Africa, by sending financial help and teams of people to care for the children. Joburg is the most overpopulated city in the world, home to abject poverty, AIDS, and many families raised by children. 5cees provides children without parents a place where they receive love, food, shelter, safety, education, and spiritual care.
When you bring your recyclable containers to Hope on the last Sunday of the month, we will take them, recycle them, and send all of the proceeds to 5cees. You can be a part of helping these children find peace and joy!
Here are some things to keep in mind when bringing your recycling:
Container needs to have CRV (California Redemptive Value) written on it.
Make sure lids are removed from the containers.
Keep aluminum, glass, and plastic containers in separate bags.
Labels must be attached to the containers.
You can hand your recycling to the greeters who give out the name tags and they will take care of the rest! Hope you are able to help these children find hope for their future :)
