MILLER CITY — No questions asked. They just want your scrap metal.

FFA students at Miller City-New Cleveland School are in their fifth year of a scrap metal drive. Started in 2011 the drive has brought in $15,000 to the FFA, which in turn is donated to charities and local families.

“We have given money to local charities and charities like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Nationwide Children’s Hospital,” said Vo-Ag instructor John Koenig.

He said the proceeds from the scrap metal drive are also donated to local adults and children with medical expenses including expenses from cancer. A donation is also given to Christian World Services, an official charity of the FFA.

“We really appreciate the support the community continues to give this scrap metal drive,” Koenig said.

The drive is ongoing. Area residents are encouraged to drop their scrap metal at the backside of the school at the Ag doors. You can also call the Ag department for a pickup at 419-876-2012.

Koenig said they accept large and small items.

“We take dishwashers, refrigerators, old drainage tile, even farm machinery,” he said.

“Then we have a place that pays us for the scrap metal,” Koenig explained. “We give 100 percent of the proceeds back to the community.”
