Cans for Kids at New Seasons

Mountian Park and McVey Locations

How to Participate:

Through a cooperative with New Seasons and Oregon Beverage Recycling, your used cans and bottles become a lucrative funding source for the Lake Oswego Schools Foundation.

Here’s how it works: Bring your cans and bottles to the Mountain Park New Seasons or  the McVey New Seasons location. Look for the recycling center and find the one marked “Cans for Kids” - you’ll see a (slightly smaller) BLUE Oregon Recycling Beverage bag. Drop your cans and bottles in and voila, we receive money each quarter. It’s that easy!

Optional: Please fill out this quick form to let us know who to thank in our Annual Report. Thank you!

Any Fred Meyer or Kroger Entity

How to Participate:

Please link your Fred Meyer rewards card to Lake Oswego Schools Foundation. Visit their Community Rewards site and type in “Lake Oswego Schools Foundation” or “94-3028590” then click the blue “enroll” button. We receive donations quarterly. Thank you!

Note:  Fred Meyer follows their privacy policy and does not share any personally identifying information so we won’t know who to thank.
