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.
