The Andersons to collect old flags for retirement

Operation Respect: Retire Your Old Flags is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at all stores of The Andersons.

Faded, worn, and damaged U.S. flags that are dropped off will be turned over to the Lou Diamond Detachment #272 of the Marine Corps League for proper disposal.

Volunteers from the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, the University of Toledo ROTC, and the Ohio Military Reserve will be on hand at the stores to accept the flags during the scheduled dropoff times.

Collection boxes for worn flags will be at the stores until Nov. 12.
