Fraser Valley – Empties for Angels collects the community’s empties and returns them for refund to help sick kids. To date, they’ve raised over $380,000 for sick kids and their financially struggling families.
The next bottle drive is happening in the Fraser Valley. Seven year old Nolin and his family live in Mission – in a home they built with their own hands over 10 years ago.
Nolin was just 3 when he was the FIRST in the WORLD to be diagnosed with NANS Deficiency. A genetic condition which renders him unable to eat, sleep, breathe, talk or bathe without help from his parents or nurses.
When the Jutten’s built their home, they did not have the benefit of foresight to build it to suit a sick kid. As you can imagine, with these daily obstacles to overcome, Nolin’s space is filled with medical equipment. Renovations and additions to their home is desperately required to help make his days simpler and more enjoyable.
Empties For Angels are once again rallying the Fraser Valley to help a family in need. On Saturday, January 5th – they will be holding their second Valley Wide Bottle Drive – and need your help!
Drive-thru drop spots will be set up around the Fraser Valley, in Mission (Raceway), Abbotsford (Aggressive Towing), Chilliwack (Alliance Church) and in Hope (Local House – Silver Chalice) and will be collecting that day from 9am to 3pm.
Donor’s who cannot make it out to one of these locations can go to 98.3 StarFM.com and fill out the form to request a volunteer pickup from their home.
An operation such as this is heavily dependent on volunteers. We are always looking for people to help sort at our drop locations, or volunteer to collect from donor’s homes. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to help.
