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!
