Hood River Valley Leos have their monthly bottle and can collection on the first Saturday of each month.
However, with the Fourth of July parade and other festivities, the club has rescheduled July’s collection to the next weekend — Saturday, July 11.
Leos along with the HRV Robotics team will be collecting, sorting and redeeming containers with a nickel deposit from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to support the Robotics team’s activities.
“We hope to capitalize on the Fourth of July holiday,” said Olivia Acosta, HRV Leos co-President and member of the robotics team. “With all the celebrations on the Fourth, we’re hoping everyone will bring their bottles and cans July 11 to help support our club and the Robotics team. It could be a record day!”
The HRV Leos club has been doing monthly bottle and can collections on the first Saturday of each month for more than six years.
As a result, the club has raised nearly $20,000 for a variety of local causes, including Lila Mae, Wy’east Middle School’s summer program, 4-H Leaders, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and St. Francis House.
Hood River Valley Leos meets on the first and third Sundays of each month at Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital.
Youth ages 12 to 18 are invited to get involved with Leos and make a difference in our community. For more information, contact Leos advisor Kristin Reese at 541-806-0278 or email email@example.com.
