Motivated by the Scouts’ Promise of making wise use of resources, four adults and seven youth members of a local scouting group are collecting reusable and recyclable items to help fund their airfare to Alberta this summer for the organization’s 13th annual Canadian Jamboree.
The 236th Toronto Scout Group, which meets at Holy Name Church near Danforth and Pape avenues, is asking people to donate old washing machines, dryers, refrigerators, stoves and computer hard drives as well as items made of steel, copper, lead and aluminum. They’re also looking for donations of pop cans and beer/wine bottles.
Anyone from the Beach or East York area interested in donating their unwanted items should email Bob Taylor at email@example.com to arrange to have the goods picked up. If possible, people are asked to send a snapshot of the items they’d like to contribute.
