Collect the Bags

Make your way through your territory to collect the bags of donations. Use the Can Count Sheet to count as you collect! Bring your loaded bags back to the St. Bart's parking lot and load your donations into the gym. Remember to make one last run through your territory to make sure you picked up all of the bags!
