The Clearwater 2024 grad class is working hard to raise funds for their special graduation events coming up this summer with a community bottle drive.
Clearwater Secondary School (CSS) seniors have been rolling up their sleeves and gathering truckloads of bottles and cans to recycle while fundraising and they would like to remind residents and businesses that donations will be accepted at the Super Save Gas station on the Old North Thompson Highway in Clearwater.
Grad spokesperson, Rogue Mattenley said the class would like to thank the community for participating in the bottle drive fundraiser that took place on Jan. 27.
“As of right now, the amount raised is undetermined. However, we have raised just over $400 from people’s generous bottle donations dropped off at the local depot and though the bottle drive is over, donations are still being accepted there.”
Rogue said all that is required is for bottles to be counted and sorted accordingly, and let the bottle depot know ‘it’s for the grads.’
“If people are unable to drop off and have a large amount of bottles and cans for donation, please contact: 250-674-8910 to speak to local grads about possible pick-up arrangements.”
The senior CSS students want everyone to know how thankful they are for the strong community support in their fundraising efforts to date.
