Wands for Wildlife Project
by Sheila Micholes
Condit Mission and Outreach Committee is sponsoring a Wands for Wildlife project from now thru February to help the Appalachian Wildlife Refuge in North Carolina.
Old mascara wands are used to remove fly eggs and larva from the fur and feathers of wild animals. Each little critter needs to be cleaned and therefore multiple wands are used for each rescue. Mascara wands work great because the bristles are close together. Please, save your old wands, do not buy new ones – this is a recycling program.
“Wash your used wand in warm soapy Dawn soap to remove all the tracings of mascara from the wand,” notes Sheila Micholes. After it is air dried give it to Sheila who will mail them the last week in February.
