SACS Recyling Project
TerraCycle, a venture founded in 2001 by a Princeton University freshman, is making innovative, eco-friendly products out of packaging and other waste materials that are not normally recycled in our municipal waste programs. To date, they have created over 50 products that are available at major retailers like Home Depot, OfficeMax, Petco, Target, Wal-Mart and Whole Foods.
Examples of some of their products are:
TerraCycle will keep track of SACS’ donations and twice a year we will be eligible to receive payment for accepted material. Most of the packaging/wrappers and associated materials recycled are redeemable at .02 cents per item. Cell phones will fetch .25 cents.
TerraCycle calls/refers to each of their streams of recyclables as “BRIGADES”. At the present time and per Brigades available, SACS has chosen to and been accepted to collect for the following:
Please bring any/all of these materials for recycling to our meetings. SACS will have a dedicated container for collection of your donated items.
Your questions about this recycling effort can be directed to Carl Eschbacher, the SACS Coordinator/Collector for this project, either by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or 816-943-8626 by telephone. Information for this project will also be available on the SACS web site.

of Prison Fellowship Ministries
Angel Tree is a ministry that reaches out to the children of inmates and their families. Angel Tree is about reconnecting parents and children a. It provides a gift guide to incarcerated parents, giving them an opportunity to become more involved in their families' Christmas by allowing them to choose a toy gift category for their child or children.
SACS volunteers will purchase and deliver gifts to three children who have been assigned to us by Angel Tree. Each child is to receive two gifts, one toy and one article of clothing. The guideline is $15 to $20 per gift totaling $30 to $40 per child.
We are asking for money donations to purchase these gifts.
