Kamara Reade is collecting plastic bottle caps​​ from soda bottles, water bottles and other drink bottles. I take them to work where a fellow teacher is saving them for a friend who uses them to help “pay” for kidney dialysis treatments. If you want to put the bottle caps in a plastic bag and put them in my box in the New Fellowship hall (or above my box if they won’t fit! I’ll pick them up and take them to work. Thanks for your help. Kamara Reade ~
