Leave your empties; support literacy


Let your empties help encourage young children in Chatham-Kent to read.

The Kiwanis Club of Chatham asks residents on May 25 to leave their refundable bottles at the end of their driveway at 9 a.m. for pickup by volunteers.

The club has partnered with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library to foster children’s literacy. This Bottles for Books fundraiser is the latest effort by the club to support the program.

Residents are invited to participate by donating any empty liquor and beer bottles. These donations will directly contribute to providing books for children in Chatham-Kent.

“The power of reading and imagination in a child’s life cannot be overstated,” Jennifer Paradis, membership chair for the Kiwanis Club of C-K, said in a media release. “By supporting Bottles for Books, not only are you recycling and contributing to a cleaner environment, but you’re also giving children the gift of education and imagination.”
