The 14th McKillop Scouting Group

The 14th McKillop Scouting Group took part in The Great Prairie Bottle Harvest this fall to raise funds for the Pacific Jamboree hosted in July.

As the cost of such a trip usually falls on the families of the Scouts, members reduced the burden by raising tax free funds from beverage container returns. The Scouting Group successfully raised over $2,054! In addition to collecting empty beverage containers, the Group combined the bottle drive with a food drive for the Interfaith Food Bank, collecting over 760 lbs of food.

They would like to thank Alberta Depot and everyone who volunteers or contributed for making the drive a fun and easy day! They’ll be gearing up to do another bottle drive this Spring.
