Donate refundable cans and bottles

Share The Spirit would like to thank our community members for the refundable cans and bottles brought to the Main Station.  Keep them coming but please remember to remove lids from bottles. 


Although Snapple and “G2” bottles are recyclable, they are not refundable.


The proceeds from the refundable bottles and cans help fund Share The Spirit Holiday food baskets and Christmas toys for children to families in need during the holidays. 


This great program has brought so much joy to families during the holiday season.  Please help us "Share The Spirit" by donating your refundable cans and bottles.

Box Tops for Education

Please remember to bring in your "Box Tops for Education" to the Main Station and we will make sure Mist Grade School recieves them.  These box tops, which are found on your cereal boxes,  are turned in and the school recieves cash for them to use for school supplies, etc.  A great program to support.
