Are you just tossing your gallon milk jugs? Amy Farris, activities director at Grangeville Health and Rehabilitation, needs them! Save them for her and drop them off at the facility so she and the residents can work on an amazing milk jug igloo project for Christmas. Rinse them well, but lids are not required. Cannot wait to see how this turns out!
