Clarence’s Recycling fundraises for Beyond the Yellow Ribbon

On Saturday, May 5, Clarence’s Recycling put on a fundraiser to support the efforts of the Isanti County Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Task Force.

Clarence Scharpen, a veteran himself, is the owner/operator of Clarence’s Recycling. His prior service and commitment to others who have served or are currently serving led Clarence to promoting this fundraiser.

What Clarence did was donate the proceeds from all the aluminum cans brought in from 8 to 1 p.m. that day which resulted in a $1,500 donation to the Isanti County Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Task Force. This generous donation will greatly assist the Task Force as it continues to serve Isanti County Service members and their familes.

Clarence and Bob Boone, Isanti County Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Task Force Chairman, want to thank all who worked at this event: Dale Strike, Bob Fredell, Mary Fredell, Scott Fredell, Susan Morris, Monica Broten, Hohn Thomas and April Thomas.  They also want to thank Isanti Rental for the use of a trailer to use as a cashier’s booth.

Both Clarence and Bob encourage people to start saving their aluminum cans for Saturday, Oct. 6. This will be the second Beyond the Yellow Ribbon fundraiser this year at Clarence’s Recycling.
