Turn Used X-Mas Lights into Computers

Don’t throw away those holiday lights when the season’s over – even if they’ve long since stopped working. The copper inside these small lights is a valuable commodity, and Lights for Life, Inc. turns your “junk” into money for the families of children with cancer. Lights for Life is a local non-profit organization that sells items like holiday lights; copper pipe/wire; old laptops and cell phones; printer cartridges; aluminum wheels; electric motors; car batteries and more to recycling companies. They give the profits to families of children fighting cancer. You can donate all of the above items (and more – just check the website below) to Lights for Life throughout the year at all Colorado and Wyoming Ace Hardware locations. Find out more at lightsforlifeinc.com.
