Call For Volunteers

I received an email from a regular reader, who asked me to pass along this information on this worthwhile event:

Returns for Leukemia Research is a fundraising initiative of The Beer Store and its employee union, UFCW Local 12R24, to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.

On the weekend of May 23 and 24, customers will be invited to donate all or a portion of their empty bottle refund to the Society. 100% of the funds they contribute will go directly to the charity.

In 2008, we were proud to raise $647,913 to support the Society in its fight against leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.

This year, our goal is to raise $800,000 across the province.

Join us at the Dougall or Walker & Richmond stores — we’ll have food! We’re both having BBQs again this year.

JOIN OUR FACEBOOK GROUP:

If you are interested in helping out, contact Nick through the facebook page above OR for those who are Facebookless, hit up the webiste: http://www.bottledrive.ca/ for more details or to sign up as a volunteer.

Even if you can’t help out for the day, mark the date down and plan on returning and donating your empties to a great cause on those days at the Beer Store on Dougall or the one at Walker and Richmond, right beside the burned out hulk. 🙂
