Donate your empties please

St Thomas Elgin General Hospital” (STEGH) is collecting beer cans, wine and beer bottles to raise money for a new Unit Dose Machine for the pharmacy. These machines cost around $350,000- and will help as one of the new steps to greatly improve our local patient care!

St Thomas resident, and general awesome person, Micky Schroeder is trying to beat her collection record of last year- close to FOUR THOUSAND items collected personally! She doesn’t get paid for this or anything- but she collects for the whole year to get as many as possible! Micky’s awesome quest ends this year on JULY 5th, and she’s still about 1000 items short of her goal.

If you want to donate your empties- and think how much farther that $3 worth of refund could go!- donations can be dropped off in the yard of 209 Adelaide St & Harrison Pl. Orchard Beach, Port Stanley OR CALL 782-3523 ( Micky’s mom) to arrange for FREE pickup!

A big shout-out to Morgan Brittan van Wyk for letting us know about this amazing person!
