Many locals are dealing with an overflow of recycling thanks to the recent holiday celebrations, and three Maple Ridge schools would like to help ease this struggle while also putting the empty bottles and cans to good use.
On Saturday, Jan. 7, Maple Ridge Elementary, Hammond Elementary, and Maple Ridge Secondary will be putting on their own bottle drive fundraisers.
Maple Ridge Elementary’s event will be raising money for the upcoming graduation of their Grade 7 class, while Hammond Elementary is trying to get enough money to throw a camping trip for their Grade 6 and 7 students, and Maple Ridge Secondary’s funds will go toward a dry grad celebration for their 2023 graduating class.
Anyone wanting to contribute to the Maple Ridge Elementary bottle drive can do so by leaving their empty bottles on their front porch by 9 a.m. on Saturday, or bringing them to the drive-thru donation line that will be at the school on Jan. 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Questions regarding the Maple Ridge Elementary fundraiser should be directed to email@example.com.
Contributions to the Hammond Elementary bottle drive can be made in a similar fashion by leaving them in front of the home by 9 a.m. on Saturday, or dropping them off at the school between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon.
Any questions about the Hammond Elementary fundraiser should be directed to either Claudine at 604-802-1816 or Michelle at 778-239-8196.
Maple Ridge Secondary will also be accepting donations by drop-off or pick-up. However, anyone wanting to have their bottles picked up is asked to contact MRSSDryGrad2023@gmail.com with their address and time preference for pick-up on Saturday. This fundraiser will run in front of the school on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon.
