Old Vases and Large Cans Needed for Newton North HS Prom. Please Donate here…

28 oz and 35 oz empty cans needed!

Hi Neighbors,

I’m helping the Newton North senior class officers with the floral centerpieces for their senior prom, which is June 4.

To save money, we are using  clean metal cans or old vases to hold the floral arrangements. The metal cans we are looking for are 28 oz to 35 oz. cans, the kind you often buy for crushed tomatoes.  They are 4 inches in diameter, or about 12.5 inches around, and about 4 to 5 inches high.  Wrapped in tissue
paper, no one will be the wiser, and we can spend more money on flowers.  (See the photo below for one example)

If you have old vases of similar size, we would love to have those too. We need at least 50, so if you have even one, that would certainly help!

Old Florist Vases also welcome!

Please check your recycling before you put it out tonight, especially if you just made a big pot of soup or pasta sauce!

Feel free to drop any donations at my house, 38 Holman in Auburndale (off Day Street which is off Commonwealth Avenue and/or Washington Blvd). I’ll leave a paper bag or a box on my front stoop.

Thanks and best regards,
