LAST CHANCE FOR BOTTLE CAPS TO EARN UVI CASH

May 23, 2002 – May – featured as Tom Joyner Foundation Scholarship drive month at the University of the Virgin Islands – is drawing to a close.
Community members who have been collecting bottle caps from Coca-Cola products for UVI's "Caps for Cash" are urged to drop them off at the bins. The deadline to turn them in for UVI's benefit is noon Tuesday, May 28, according to a UVI release.
At Tutu Park Mall from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday there will be a caps drive. Additional St. Thomas drop-off locations are Charlotte Amalie Fire Station, Frank's Bake Shop and UVI's public relations office on the third floor of the Classroom Administration Building.
For each six-foot-tall bin full of caps collected, Coca-Cola will donate $1,000 to UVI for student scholarships, as part of the Tom Joyner Foundation May scholarship drive.
