Helping People Help their Neighbors

"I am so impressed at how R4R keeps items in circulation." - Lisa

COVID-19 UPDATE: Recycle for a Reason, a mission of the United Methodist Church of Chugiak, is discontinuing operation for the winter. We are very sad to have to suspend this service to our community after eight years. We will miss seeing all who have donated so generously, the eager shoppers waiting at the door, and the many dedicated volunteers from the community and the church. Please continue to share love by caring for yourself, your family and your community.

-R4R Board of Directors, and the congregation of the United Methodist Church Of Chugiak.
