Reynolds hosts bottle drive for Cops for Cancer

The empty cans and bottles lying around your garage or messing up your car are in demand this weekend.

Reynolds secondary students are in the thick of an intensive 12-day campaign to raise money for Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, which will roll through the school next Friday (Oct. 7).

On Saturday (Oct. 1) the students will host a bottle drive and car wash at Reynolds (3963 Borden St.) beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Anyone looking to drop by to help or donate to the cause is urged to do so.

There will also be a dance for adults – alcohol will be served – in the school gym Saturday night (7 p.m. to midnight) featuring music from The Midnights.

Tickets are $10 and are available at Reynolds’ front office or at the door.

Students from both Reynolds and Lambrick Park will also be out this weekend canvassing neighbourhoods for financial donations for head shaves.

Both schools say their core Cops for Cancer fundraising comes from the pledges individual students collect from neighbours, family and friends to shave their heads.

To make a donation to Tour de Rock visit www.tourderock.ca and look for the link.

You can donate to any participating Saanich school by selecting “More” under the Team Rank box.
