The Immanuel Lutheran Church will be hosting an e-cycle fundraiser this coming Saturday, January 26th 2013, and it is expanding to a full day event from 9:00am till 3:00pm. Waste haulers will no longer take your unwanted electronics but on this day they will have someone at the church who will gladly take your old fridge, freezer, dehumidifier, computers, video and music components, flat screen monitors and televisions, batteries and much more.
This is a great way to get rid of those worn out and broken Christmas lights and decorations as well. Please tell your friends and neighbors and help them raise money and awareness for their church and ministries while providing a valuable service for the community.
Immanuel Lutheran Church and Student Center is located at 511 Russell Rd, in DeKalb, Illinois 60115.
