Bottle Drive, Garage Sale, BBQ & Bake Sale
Thank you for your support at our Bottle Drive last spring which was held at The SCRF's (www.alifeforelisa.org) annual Gargage Sale, BBQ/Bake Sale. There was delicious home made baking by 101temptations , Hot dogs from Chicago58 and hundreds of items in the garage sale. It was a great day raising lots of funds for the charity and Rotary Club.
Empties can continue to be dropped off in front of the garage throughout the year at 41 Gwendolen Ave., to continue to support our bottle drive efforts.
During the Covid-19 pandemic our fundraising activities were limited however, since our first Bottle Drive and Bake Sale last September we have raised over $4,000 through these efforts. Thank you for your support!
