Ongoing HI-5 Recycling Project

One of the on-going projects the Board of Stewardship and Mission handles is the collection of recycled items which we turn in. The monies earned are added to J’s MiniMart funds for use for mission projects which come up during the year. When requests for assistance are forwarded to the Board, these monies are available for use. Last year, funds were used to:

  • Assist a Japanese community to add flowers to their surroundings after the devastating tsunami
  • Provide emergency supplies for the women of the Japanese community (SWAN project in Miyaji Prefecture)
  • Gifts for mothers and their babies in the Hi`ilani Project through the ICIA
  • Assist with emergency travel expenses, and other appropriate individual requests approved by the Board.

This year the collection of recycled items in June and July were given to John Narruhn for his use when he attended the National Youth Event in Orlando, FL, and $150 was given to the IYAA to be used to send four participants to the annual Oregon service project which they participate in.

Collection bins are found in the hallway to the sanctuary, and by the doorway to the Building of Faith. We re-cycle glass bottles (like beer bottles), aluminum cans, 17 oz. or less plastic bottles (like water bottles), and 17.1 oz. -68 oz. plastic bottles. The covers for the plastic bottles may be left on and they must have the label on the bottle to show that it is a HI5 bottle. If the label comes off, just roll it up and insert it into the bottle. Be sure to remove all liquids from the containers. If you are unsure whether your items may be recycled, include them and we will sort them. Every item counts and at the same time we are helping by being good stewards of our land by not adding to the waste at the dump.

We ask for your continued support of this project and thank you all very much for helping us both with this effort and with your donations and purchases at our monthly J’s MiniMart.
