It takes a lot of bottles to pay for a bus trip to St. Louis!
We braved the cold windy weather today to collect bottles. This time our bottle drive was in the west end of town, because many other groups had decided to do bottle drives in the University neighbourhood.
We had signs up all over the place to let people know about the collection today.
Many thanks to Transformix Engineering for allowing us to use their parking lot as a sorting station. We also appreciated being able to go inside and get warm when needed. We had several parents volunteer their vehicles to transport all of the collected cans and bottles. We had about 10 students who sorted glass, and excitedly crushed cans.In the end, after 4 van loads full, we raised quite a bit of money! Our grand total was $356. Good job everyone! Your hard work sorting everything sure made the job easier for the guys at the Beer Store. The complimented us on how manageable it was on their end.
Look out for another bottle drive in the coming weeks. Ask family and family friends to save their empties for you.
