Caps Collection Project

Thank you for donating caps!

Thank you to all our CrossWays Preschool and Celebration! Childcare students and families that helped us collect plastic caps. Caps collected previously were turned into a bench for our playground by a recycling company in Indiana.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are no longer able to collect additional caps.
