Green 13's Rain Barrel Sale Fundraiser - Thank You!
Warm thanks to all who made Green 13's Rain Barrel Fundraiser such a success --- to Shaul Kochba the manager of FreshCo on Dundas at Runnymede for allowing rain barrel pick-up at their parking lot; all who shared word of the fundraiser; members of Green 13 who volunteered, liaised, gophered, postered, organized and staffed; to Pam Mountain, the head librarian at Annette Branch which allowed us to display a sample rain barrel; to Larry Pomerantz and the most supportive staff of RainBarrel.ca for their expertise and guidance; to the excellent student volunteers --- Claudia, Ana, Jonah, Stefan, Dante and Cole from Humberside Collegiate.
By way of thanking our community, Green 13 is pleased to offer:
