GLOBAL.diocesan shieldSt. Louis, Washburn, is collecting bottles and caps for its current mission projects. The parish seeks brown medicine bottles with labels removed, which will be sent to medical missionary teams overseas for use in dispensing medication.

They also seek plastic caps from water, soda, laundry detergent, vitamin bottles and other household products to donate to an inner-city school in Chicago, where the caps can be redeemed. Items can be sent to bookkeeper Sharon Hacker, 400 East 8th St., Washburn, WI 54891, or dropped off at the St. Louis Church office, 713 Washington Ave., Washburn. The office is open 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., Monday through Friday.
