It’s time again for SPUD’s Winter Bin Drive!
As the temperature drops and the winter weather sets in, we start bundling up. Layers of sweaters, Gortex, wool socks, and toques keep us safe and warm as we enjoy outdoor activities or dash from car to building, trying to avoid the cold, rain, and snow. But for families with limited resources, the cold can be devastating. That’s why SPUD is partnering two organizations for our winter bin drive this year: WIN House and Bissell Centre.
WIN House provide safe spaces and emergency shelter for women and children fleeing domestic abuse. Many time these women are not able to pack before they flee, so WIN house helps provide essentials. Bissell Centre is an Edmonton institution devoted to the elimination of poverty in their community. They support individuals and families in need and try to get them back on their feet. Again, providing essential personal items is key.
Last year, SPUD customers donated a ton to our bin drive, and your donations were greatly appreciated! We hope you’ll help out again this year. The bin drive runs Nov 12th to Nov 30th, so be sure to leave your donations in your bins for pickup.
