Community support needed for bottle drive

Many organizations have had to pivot to find new creative ways to generate funding during the pandemic. Lethbridge Family Centre has partnered with GPS Container Depot to start a community bottle drive to raise money for the organization. The Executive Director of the organization, Maral Kiani Tari, says the pandemic has hit them hard, and they haven’t been able to recover funds from previous community fundraising events. You can drop off your bottles on May 29th at the Lethbridge Family Centre location in the west at Coalbanks Blvd or at either GPS Container Depot locations in the city.

Lethbridge Family Centre provides children and family programs, resources, and connections.

“Our programs are for children up to 18-years-old. Our two spokes are parent education, and family success coaching in Lethbridge,” says Kiani Tari.

For those who can’t make it to one of the three drop-off locations, they can get in contact with the main office to arrange for alternative pickup.

GPS Container Depot will continue to receive bottles for Lethbridge Family Centre until June 30th.

Kiani Tari adds that every two large bags of bottles is equal to one entry to win a $150.00 Scott’s Gardening Package.
