I was recently approached by a team project management students from SFU about their initiative, The Good Drive, and have since signed on as an event sponsor.
The Good Drive is a one-day event to collect household goods donated by individuals and families from across the Lower Mainland. These goods will then go directly to local charitable organization Gather and Give. They support low income families and those living below the poverty line.
Sunday, November 7th, 2010 from 10:00am until 4:00pm
Parking lot at Gilmore Ave and Hastings Street
Basics such as a pots and pans, hand towels, kettles, blenders, mugs, shower curtains, toques, socks, and bus tickets can go a long way.
This may be the perfect opportunity to get rid of that mixer you received as a wedding gift (and have never used) and reduce the clutter in your home. Someone could benefit from having your cookbooks as well if you’ve gone digital with your culinary creation references.
You can view a full list of acceptable donation items (compiled by Gather and Give) on The Good Drive website.
You may follow The Good Drive on Facebook or Twitter for event information and updates.
