    Coats for Kids

    Coats for Kids – 2017

    The Eugene Active 20-30 Club is conducting their annual Coats for Kids project from through October 27th. Lane Apex is proud to be a partner in helping get coats for the needy children in Lane County. Often children in our area go without warm winter gear because their families cannot afford to purchase a new or used winter coat. Last year the Active 20-30 Club supplied coats through agencies such as Birth to Three, Head Start, The Relief Nursery & SCAR/Jasper Mountain to name a few and still were not able to fill all the requests they had. Can you help this year? Now through October 27th, Lane Apex will be accepting donations of new and used coats at our office (2399 Hwy 99, Eugene, OR—just a quarter mile south of Beltline) and our drivers will also be able to take coat donation on our regular routes to make it easy for you to help:

    •Just place a new or used coat in a plastic bag and mark it “Coats for Kids”. The drivers will pick these up and we will make sure they get to the needy children in our area.

    •There is a significant need for infant and toddler sizes as there are many request for these sizes of coats.

    •For more information, check the Eugene 20-30 Club’s website – www.eugene2030.org

    Haul Away Hunger

    Lane Apex Disposal has teamed up with Food for Lane County to sponsor “Haul Away Hunger” food collection drive in the month of September for residential customers in the areas in which we provide service. During the week of September 18th – 22nd, Lane Apex drivers will pickup canned food donations at curbside. Customers should set out the canned food in a plastic or paper grocery bag marked “FLC” next to the red recycle bin when they place their carts out for collection on their regular service day. Please DO NOT put the bag in the bin. We will also be accepting food and monetary donations at our office, at 2399 Hwy 99 in Eugene, for the entire month of September if residents are unable or miss putting out food donations at the curb. We want to encourage all our customers to help us “Haul Away Hunger” in our community.
