Special Olympics is having their annual bottle drive fundraiser. This event where volunteers and athletes come together to deliver those little wrapped up baggies to your doorstep for you to fill with free pick up a week later. Remember us on your September long weekend as you fill that baggie. Your donations go directly to your Special Olympic athlete’s travel costs and entry fees to tournaments, and to equipment needed.

Creston Special Olympics has many sport choices for athletes, as well as healthy living programs designed by Special Olympics B.C. We continue to grow every year with the support of our community through volunteering and fundraising. Dave at the bottle depot supports many causes and we appreciate everything he and his crew do on bottle drive days and every day in between. Our athletes sort and count all day with his guidance and much fun is had.

Joy Craft, our faithful Fundraising Coordinator, works diligently to organize the routes and volunteers, and put together those baggie packages. She adds new routes each year and if you do not receive your baggie on your doorstep by Wednesday, September 6th, or you would like to volunteer yourself to help with the bottle drive, you can email or phone Joy at jcraft06@hotmail.com, or 250-402-3008.

Cash donations are greatly appreciated as well and can also be picked up on bottle drive day. Bottle and can (Canadian deposits only) donations will be picked up starting at 8:00am on Saturday, September 9th until 1:30pm. Thank you for your support every year Creston! Our athletes are achieving great things with your encouragement and assistance.
