For four years now the Beer Store and its employees have done an annual bottle drive in aid of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
You probably have known a friend, colleague or loved one who has experienced a battle with cancer–perhaps you’ve fought it yourself. Despite great progress in helping people live with cancer certain types of cancer can be more persistent and deadly and so efforts to fight this battle must also persist. The Beer Store wishes to help and you can help, too–it is super-easy!
On May 29 & 30 donate your empty beer, wine and spirit containers at your local Beer Store to help find a cure for leukemia and other blood cancers. For more information or to volunteer, please go to www.bottledrive.ca or call 1-866-600-0567.
Volunteers are needed at Beer Store retail locations across Ontario to assist in greeting customers and collecting their empties on:
Saturday, May 29 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. and Sunday, May 30 between noon and 5 p.m.
You do NOT need to be employed by The Beer Store
Anyone interested in helping this great cause is welcome to come out and volunteer! If you are interested in helping out, please contact the Beer Store, indicating what days and times you’d be available, your community, and the location of The Beer Store nearest you.
