Habitat for Humanity hosts Kelowna bottle drive

The fundraiser will help build affordable and safe houses for people in need

Habitat for Humanity Okanagan is calling on Kelowna and West Kelowna residents to skip the depot and donate their bottles to ReStore locations instead.

The charity will be hosting a bottle drive on Saturday, July 10, to help keep its affordable homeownership program running. Habitat for Humanity volunteers will be collecting bottles from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at ReStore locations in Kelowna and West Kelowna. The Kelowna ReStore is located on 2092 Enterprise Way and the West Kelowna ReStore is located on 1793 Ross Road.

“Your bottles build houses for people who are in need of safe and affordable housing. Therefore, I want everyone to donate their bottles,” said Danielle Smith, director of resource development at Habitat for Humanity Okanagan.
