As for the Empties for Good campaign, we surpassed our goal of $5,000 and raised over $8,500 in empties and monetary donations. Thank you to everyone who took part in our fundraising campaign. Also, a special thank you to Dr. Lisa Kellett and DLK on Avenue who matched our empties total dollar for dollar for two lockers, to Emiliano and Ana’s No Frills for matching the next three lockers, and to Safe Storage Depot for donating storage space.
