The Dollars for Scholars can drop receptacle is back at the Hy-Vee parking lot for citizens' disposal of cans and bottles. The receptacle will be in the lot throughout the remainder of the summer and early fall. It is located in the southwest corner of the parking lot. Hy-Vee shoppers and citizens in general are urged to donate their recyclable cans. The money will go toward paying operating expenses for the local chapter, as well as funding several scholarships next spring.
Dollars for Scholars promises its financial supporters that 100% of the money contributed during the fall fund drive and for designated scholarships will be given back to graduating seniors of Storm Lake High School and Storm Lake St. Mary's in the form of scholarships. To keep this promise, cash for operating expenses is raised through special projects like the can-drop receptacle.
Last year, over $1,400 was raised through this project.
