As we mentioned earlier, Pacific Steel & Recycling said, “this has never been done before.” So there was no book to follow on how to set up such a program. Gordon Lenke has been instrumental in managing the process, A special thanks to Bev Lenke (Gordon’s wife), who took the pictures.

Local farmers are joining in. One brought in six riding mowers. When the weather clears we have been invited to his farm to pick up old equipment, scrap, etc. Another farmer also donated scrap steel and invited us to his farm when the weather clears. This coming week we will be getting more from business that have scrap metal and have committed to help.

For those in the Spokane Area, you can continue going directly to Pacific Steel’s Recycling facility at 1114 North Ralph, which is just North of Trent. If you are coming in via I-90, turn North on Freya and then left (West) on Trent, then in two short blocks turn right (North) on North Ralph. Pacific Steel entrance will be on your right (East). Simply tell the person at the weighing station that your load is for the Orange Heart Fund. That’s it!
