Rotary of Innisfil weekend bottle drive helps local Legion and Innisfil Food Bank

It was the first of three bottle drives this summer

from Rotary Club of Innisfil

The Rotary Club of Innisfil was out in force on Saturday across Innisfil to collect refundable beer, wine, and liquor bottles/cans. The money raised from these returns goes back to programs for the betterment of the Innisfil community. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the Legion and to the Innisfil Food Bank.

Newly inaugurated President Dean Bercier stated, “I want to thank the community for their great generosity and to all of my fellow Rotarians for all of their hard work. Also, to the members of the Belle Ewart Legion, the Innisfil Community Church, and Cookstown Home Hardware for the use of their properties. We have a lot of plans to help the community, and we couldn’t do it without you.”

This particular bottle drive was the first of three this summer. The second will be held on August 7, with locations to be announced. So, start saving those empties! If you want to donate them before then, reach out to us at bottledrive@rotaryclubofinnisfil.ca and one of our members will arrange a pick-up.

The Rotary Club of Innisfil has been helping the community since 2010 and currently has over 30 members. Past-President Barb Baguley remembers, “We started out with only a handful of people, but now the club has grown and events like the Bottle Drive allow us to help our community.”
