Now on it’s 4th year, volunteers came out on Sunday May 22nd 2016 for the benefit of others. Companies along with their employees are asked to plan and complete a project for a good cause, it could be for a family, school, children’s/ elderly home, community or the greater public. For 3 years, we also engaged the public to participate in a Recycling Drive which demonstrates that separating paper, glass and plastic is easy and a step in the right direction.
