Project - Draft Stoppers

Volunteers completed approximately 60 Draft Stoppers on May 23rd.    The draft stoppers were filled with cat litter.  PETCO-Keizer Station generously donated some of the cat litter for the project. 

Door stoppers were donated to the Community Action Agency's Energy Assistance Program to give to their clients to assist in reducing energy costs and reduce the strain on heating resources in our community.

Thank you to the Sewing Club at Center 50+ for preparing the draft stoppers for us to fill.

 

Service-to-go Carousel projects will be done quarterly.  Watch for upcoming details on our next Service-To-Go Caraousel project day.
