A few weeks ago we were given the opportunity to get together with a group of volunteers, some of which are adopting, to have a fundraising day…. and it was quite a day!
There is a lovely couple who receive tens of thousands of bottles, cans, juice boxes, and tetra packs from various remote fishing and logging camps accessible by water from Campbell River. Over the past 15 years they have been able to donate over $60,000 to various charities and non-profit organizations.
Our team of adults and kids went for a day of sorting, sorting and more sorting. Did I mention sorting? We sorted thousands of cans and bottles! A day of different smells, dirty hands, lots of laughter and aching backs but it was so much fun! The money that was raised that day went towards a kid’s summer camp and three family adoptions.
To that very special couple for donating this money towards our children, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
