(OCALA, Fla.) Feb. 14, 2013 — Right now you can help the Summer Art Camp program at the Appleton Museum of Art, College of Central Florida, by gathering and recycling your plastic bottle caps. Bring your clean bottle caps to the Appleton’s front desk, located in the Rotunda Gallery on the east side of the museum, during regular hours so children at the Summer Art Camp can create amazing works of original art in the months ahead.

All sizes of plastic bottle caps will do, including caps from milk jugs, juice bottles, detergent jugs, salad dressing bottles, spray paint can lids and margarine tub lids. Pink, brown, yellow, green and purple caps are needed the most.
