A scrap metal drive continues through Saturday in the student parking lot of Chippewa Falls Senior High School, 735 Terrill St.
Donated scrap metal is being accepted from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily in the school parking lot near the Cardinal entrance. Proceeds from the drive will benefit Flags 4 the Fallen, a student organization that plans on traveling to Pearl Harbor in June 2017.
The students on that trip will honor three Chi-Hi soldiers who died in World War II and are buried in the National Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu. They include Harry W. Kramer, who was killed in the Pearl Harbor attack, Desmond G. Kurth, who died in the battle for Imo Jima, and Robert E. Baldeschwiler, who died in the Battle of Saipan.
The scrap metal drive will take donations of aluminum cans, microwaves, washers, dryers, extension cords, automobile and boat batteries, computer towers, cell phones, push mowers and snow blowers.
Electronics, furniture and appliances with compressors will not be accepted.
Social Studies teacher John Kinville said 27 students are helping in the scrap metal drive.
