Bottle drive casts Lifeline

A bottle drive at Country Grocer on Bowen Road this weekend will raise cash to help extend Lifeline to youth.

Lifeline works with other organizations to reach out to students of all backgrounds, including those at risk with drop-in programs that provide food and supervised recreation at Bayview Elementary and John Barsby Community schools.

The program's goal is to ensure no student attends school hungry and that every student has access to supportive adults to help students overcome low self-esteem, improve stress management skills, minimize high-risk activities and instil the confidence to face and make tough choices.

The bottle drive happens Saturday (May 3) 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.
