BPW Scholarship

13 April 2015

BPWThe Eaton Rapids Business and Professional Women's Club (BPW) will hold the 4th annual "Scrap for Scholarships" fundraiser.  BPW will be collecting metal items at the Eaton Rapids Public Works Facility on Saturday, April 25th from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Sunday, April 26th from noon to 6:00 p.m.  Proceeds from the sale of the scrap metal will fund scholarships for women living in the Eaton Rapids School District.  Any type of metal will be accepted.  Spring cleaning is almost here and we are hoping that the community will contribute all the unwanted scrap metal they can find.  Almost anything containing metal can be donated from old appliances and scrap aluminum sliding to car parts and old pots and pans.  No computers, TV's or electronics can be accepted.  The drop off location is the Eaton Rapids Public Works Facility at 300 Market Street.  For more information about "Scrap for Scholarships", contact Linda Gillentine at 663-6741 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
