If you have refundable bottles and cans piling up in your garage and don’t like standing in line at the Bottle Drop place to redeem them, then this fundraiser is for you.
You can pick up a blue Bottle Drop Bag in Walker’s main office or get one from the Music Boosters. All you need to do is fill the bag with bottle and cans, then drop it off at any of the Bottle Drop locations and they will count them and credit the Music Booster account. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Anna at 503.542.2938.
