Donations of bottle caps are needed for the Boonville girls’ memorial bench
If you drink a lot of soda or bottled water, save those bottle caps for a good cause.
Elliana Cobb was a six-year-old girl from Boonville whose life was tragically cut short in January 2020. Elliana was walking in the wilderness with a relative when a tree fell on her in Boonville. While the crews were unable to save Elliana, her memory is alive and well with her friends and family.
Keep your memory alive
Elliana’s mother Sarah found another way to keep her daughter’s memory alive with a bench made from plastic bottle caps. The bench, when completed, will be located in the playground at Oakdale Elementary School, where Elliana attended school. However, in order to complete this bench, they must first collect bottle caps to craft it.
How you can help
Sarah says they need around 200 to 300 bottle caps to create the bench in honor of her daughter. We all have a lot of bottle caps that we use that could be donated to this cause rather than just thrown in the trash. Acceptable bottle caps that can be used to create this bench include:
- Caps for water, soda, juice and sports drinks
- Drug bottle caps /
- Milk jug, creamer caps
- Folding caps
- Detergent caps
- Spout plugs (mustard)
- Lacquer caps
- Spray paint caps
- Toothpaste caps
- Ointment tube caps
- Deodorant caps
- Baby food caps
- Applesauce sachet caps
- Shampoo / conditioner
How to donate your bottle caps
You can collect all of your bottle caps weekly or however you like and drop them off at Signs by Design in Newburgh and Oakdale Elementary School in Boonville. For the moment, there is no deadline to deposit your donations. They will accept them until they have enough gifts to create the bench. If anyone has any questions or needs more information, you can contact Sarah by email at [email protected]
