Global Response

 

Our community has a heart for those in need around the world. When an earthquake struck in Haiti, our community rallied with a full scale bottle drive. In coordination with Rock 97 and Roseneau Transport, Recycle Plus raised close to $40,000 for victims of this disaster.

 

Centre 2000 was the drop off site, Rock 97 broadcast “on location” and Recycle Plus staff was there to sort and stack and say “Thank you” for each and every donation.

 

Five days later, three 53 foot trailers were filled and Recycle Plus staff donated their wages for the time it took to load, unload, resort and process the containers for shipment. GPDAPDD responded by matching the funds from the donated wages. Roseneau Transport also donated and matched the cartage fees for shipping.

 

$20,000 was raised and because this money was channeled through the Red Cross, the federal government matched the donation for a total of $40,000 for this cause.

 Cans For Kids

 

Alberta Cans for Kids is a program intended to connect Depots with their communities through fundraising initiatives and to make a difference in a tangible way. Our first partner was the Stollery’s Children’s Hospital and within 15 months the goal of $100,000 was achieved late last year. Ordinary Albertans were supporting the program around the province. In 2010 ABDA added the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation. The province was split, and a rivalry between North and South began.

 

Donation bins are located on site at both Plus I and Plus II Bottle Depots and our community has responded in a most generous way. Since the implementation of this program, over $22,000 has been raised in Grande Prairie for the Stollery.

 

Alderman Lorne Radbourne from the Grande Prairie City Council has a special place in our hearts for his recognition of this worthy cause. His granddaughter has been the recipient of medical care at the Stollery and we could not be more pleased to play a small part for someone in our community.
