Band Day is Sept. 7

Update/Correction: The drop location will be at Countryside Christian Church, 5775 McLeod Lane NE in Keizer from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Members of the McNary High School band and color guard will spread throughout Keizer neighborhoods on Saturday, Sept. 7, to collect redeemable cans and bottles as a fundraiser to the benefit the band program.

Teams of band members will go door-to-door seeking donations of cans and bottles that can be redeemed. They will also accept cash donations. Cans and bottles can be left on the front porch or in front of the garage.

Band day is overseen by the McNary Band Boosters who will set up a station at the high school parking lot to accept and sort donations from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; they will accept donations at this site as well from people who want to bring their donated cans and bottles themselves.

Supporters can contribute to the band throughout the year by registering for a free BottleDrop account and earmarking their refunds for the McNary Band. Once registration is complete, you will be able to pick up special green recycling bags that can be filled and dropped off at BottleDrop Centers.
