We are proud and humbled by the support of our community. This past Saturday, April 24, Arcadian Projects, in partnership with Prestige Custom Craftsmen, organized a bottle drive in support of the Wilmot Family Resource Centre Inc. We are thrilled to say that, due to the tremendous generosity of our community and volunteers, we raised $10,000.
The Wilmot Family Resource Centre is a non-profit, charitable organization that supports both the communities of Wilmot and Wellesley. Individuals and families can access a variety of community programs such as food assistance (The Food Bank of Waterloo Region), employment services, children & youth programming and more.
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who donated, whether by bottle, cash, cheque or online.
And THANK YOU to our volunteers, local business owners themselves, for coming together to collect, sort, drive and lend. We could not have done it without you and an extra thank you to BOS Services Inc who provided bins and trucks. It is a wonderful feeling to be part of communities supporting communities. #communitystrong
You may be wondering how we were able to run a bottle drive during COVID-19 while practicing appropriate safety protocols. Our volunteers were families who worked together in their family unit, wearing masks and gloves.
