Save your empties for a couple more weeks…Returns for Leukemia Research is coming up!Share Tweet
I recently heard about this fundraiser, and I am absolutely loving the idea. Returns for Leukemia Research — a weekend where customers are invited to donate all or a portion of their empty bottle refunds at The Beer Store to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.
Returns for Leukemia Research will be happening on May 24 and 25 this year and is a fundraising initiative of the Beer Store and its employee union UFCW Local 12R24. 100% of the funds go directly to the charity. Last year they raised $500,000….wow!
Remember, beer, wine and spirits bottles can be donated. Check out www.bottledrive.ca for more info and if you’d like to be a volunteer.
I wonder how many bottles it will take to raise more than $500,000? Anyone know? Guesses?
