Refreshment Service Pepsi-Cola General Manager Bill Osborn told The Brazil Times Friday the organization is setting up its annual Community Cap Program.
"This is the third consecutive year we've done it," Osborn said.
Osborn said the program would run through May.
Osborn said beginning next week some Pepsi products will be delivered in the Wabash Valley with yellow caps. The caps are worth 5 cents.
In turn, residents may collect the caps and turn them into selected collection sites around the Wabash Valley.
At the conclusion of the program, Pepsi will donate money back to area charities and non-profit groups.
Osborn said various 2-liter bottles, 16-ounce six packs, 24-ounce six packs, 1-liter bottles and 20-ounce bottles will all have yellow caps throughout the next three months.
Some area collection sites include the YMCA of Clay County, 225 E. Kruzan St., Brazil.
Area organizations already signed up to take part include the YMCA of Clay County, Serving On The Streets (S.O.S.), in addition to Meridian Elementary School, East Side Elementary School, North Clay Middle School, Northview High School and Forest Park Elementary School.
Other non-profit agencies, schools or local charities that wish to sign up for the program should call 812-466-0602 by Feb. 28, in order to receive funds.
Osborn said all the money collected by May will be given to the local charities and non-profit organizations.
He said Pepsi would conduct a cap collection day May 22, at Mix-FM studios (824 S. 3rd St., Terre Haute) as well.
Osborn said last year, Pepsi donated more than $8,000 as a result of the program.
He added there was approximately $93,000 worth of yellow caps distributed in the Wabash Valley.
"We hope people will be looking for Pepsi products to help their charity of choice. That's what we hope to do," Osborn said.
"We want to get involved in the community. It's a good program. We enjoy doing it. It's fun.
