Winnifred Stewart: Empties to WINN Project
The Empties to WINN program began 10 years ago with the collection of containers in one Edmonton neighbourhood. Today, this unique program operates in 300 neighbourhoods in Edmonton and the surrounding areas with regular pick-ups from over 12,000 households, businesses, retail outlets, condos, schools, sporting facilities and community services. To date, the participants of the program have collected over 42 million containers. This year, the profit from ETW is targeted at $320,000. These profits will go directly to support our programs, services, and individuals.
The association provides support to 200 adults with developmental disabilities who are striving towards their goals and dreams. Visit their website at www.winnifredstewart.com to learn more.
That’s not all; your participation in our program has helped to keep countless containers from entering the landfill.
St. Margaret’s has been participating in this project since March of 2012. Empties to WINN is aking for your assistance in promoting our service to your family, neighbours and business associates. Please have the household or business complete the How did you hear about Empties to WINN? portion during the signup process at http://emptiestowinn.com/signup.
Our next pickup of empty bottles (juice, milk, cans, and other beverage containers) is scheduled for June 8th, 2017. There are empty bags downstairs behind the collection bags if you need some to take home and fill!

During your travels this spring/summer, if you visit another church, please bring back the bulletin with you and post it on our “Summer Travels” bulletin board in the front foyer of the church. It’s always fun to see where people have been!

Please check out our monthly announcement sheet for more upcoming events. If you have not received a copy or have changed your email address, please update your email with Tim or Melanie. Extra copies are available on the table at the back of the church.
